MAGNY COURS, RACE ONE: VALLES AND IACONELLI UNDER THE CHEQUERED FLAG
New reliable performance for BCN's single seaters at Magny Cours, whereby both of them concluded the race under the chequered flag in a race characterized by a very high temperature of the tarmac.
Adrian Valles and Carlos Iaconelli led a clever race keeping a competitive race pace without committing mistakes. The race strategy allowed the two drivers to recover some positions and to conclude positively the race despite being out of points.
Remarkable GP2 debut for Iaconelli. The young Brazilian, very productive and accessible to the dialogue with engineers, improved particularly in the second part of the race after the mandatory pit-stop and his lap times constantly decreased. No problems for him from a physical viewpoint either, despite the very hot weather.
