The penultimate round of the 2010 GP2 Main Series at Monza ended up in a really positive way at home for Trident Racing. Despite the issues suffered in qualifying, drivers Adrian Zaugg and Edoardo Piscopo proved fast and consistent, managing to avoid the race's carnage and taming the subsequent safety-car neutralizations.

Both cars performed well and proved steady also in the closing stages, enabling drivers to climb back to the points zone. Pit-stops have been key too, with the Trident Racing crew performing flawlessly. Thanks to today's results, Piscopo will take off from the front row on race 2, just one spot in front of team-mate Zaugg.

The Monza weekend is set to end tomorrow, with the dispute of race 2. The start is set for 10:35 AM, with live coverage by RAI2.

Adrian Zaugg. "Today's race has been a true demolition derby! I saw crashes everywhere, but despite that I'm proud to say that finally nobody hit me! Apart from the lengthy safety-car periods, has been pretty cool, and my car performed well. We're still lacking some speed to go and fight at the top, but we've been consistent from flag to flag. I opted for a late pit-stop because the car kept improving, but late in the race it became dangerous in case another full-course yellow came out. I hope to round the weekend out with a good result on race 2."

Edoardo Piscopo. "I'm incredibly happy to have ended up my very first race in the GP2 Main Series into the points zone. It's not only for the 7th place scored, but also for the laptimes we clocked and for the lack of mistakes. I was helped by a "relaxed" start. I didn't want to stall the engine at my first time on the car, and I've been really careful. By doing so I've been able to avoid all the lap 1 mess. It's been my first one-hour race too, and I'm quite satisfied with how I performed physically. I hope for a good start tomorrow, and to feel how it's like to lead a GP2 race in T1."
