05.14.10 - The first race of Monaco GP2 Main Series event for Davide Valsecchi ended in a very unlucky way.

Having started from twelfth position on the grid, at the first corner Davide was hit from the car of Max Chilton.

"Before the start my goal was just to stay out of trouble - Valsecchi said - but a few meters after the start I heard a shot and then a car that flew over me. ... I found my car with a broken rear wing, so I was forced to pit, losing a lap. After that my race is over, even if the stop came after twenty laps after a 'pinched' to the Swimming Pool chicane. A bad day for me and the team, because today we had a very good car, and when I was in a position to drive a clear lap my laptime was competitive as the race leader. It is not our weekend, and I hope things will go better in tomorrow’s race".
