Hungaroring Preview: Trident Racing eyes Hungaroring victory

The GP2 Series goes to Hungary, as the second part of the 2007 Season is finally starting. After the profitable round at the Nurburgring, with two vital points-finishes for Pastor Maldonado and a maiden podium for Kohei Hirate, Trident Racing is in an upbeat mood, and willing to carry out another successful weekend at the Hungaroring. Since both drivers are famliar with the racetrack, practice will be used to develop set-up solutions; qualifying is also expected to be vital; due to the few passing opportunities, an high place on the grid will allow to avoid traffic and, of course, keep behind the potential rivals.

Alessandro Alunni Bravi, Team Principal

"As we`re approaching the second and final part of the season, there`s no use in hiding our expectations. We`re moving towards Hungary with very clear targets: trying to win race 1 with Pastor Maldonado, and confirm the great performances seen at the Nurburgring with Kohei Hirate. It may appear an ambitious goal, but we`re confident we`ll complete a successful weekend. Maldonado raced at the Hungaroring in June, winning his debut race in the Euroseries 3000 from the pole on an unknown track. He shown a great feeling with his car on this type of track, and an incredible adaptiveness. Kohei, who is called to confirm his remarkable state of form, tested the track in advance too by taking many laps in a Formula Renault 2.0; that will eliminate a possible handicap in the upcoming weekend. The Hungaroring won`t probably suit him too much, but we`re counting on his enthusiasm. Having a good qualifying will be crucial, as well as finding the best strategy; the heat will add another concern, pushing tires to their limits".
