Summer traffic

Heavy traffic, 36 degrees air temperature and an engine problem. Trident Racing afternoon has been conditioned by these elements, consequently Gimmi Bruni took P12 and Andreas Zuber P16. When the time was right they both had to abort their fast laps because of the traffic and then, because of the heat, they could not properly exploit the anyway very good Bridgestone tyres. On top of this Gimmi had a problem with his engine.

Gimmi Bruni #26 - position 12
"This morning everything went well, I was sixth, so we were confident for a good grid position. But during qualifying things went wrong so in the end I just took the sixth row. Now the engineers are taking a very close look to my engine, which was not performing well, I hope they will fix the problem. For tomorrow I hope things will go a bit better than today".

Andreas Zuber #27 - position 16
"I could not have a good run on new tyres because Carroll spun in front of me while I was in my flying lap. So we tried to change something in the car trying to recover some positions but with these hot weather we could not do that much. For tomorrow we have to study very well the strategy, I hope to be able to recover the gap as I already did other times this season".
