Edoardo Piscopo, DNF

Adrian Zaugg ended up in 7th today for Trident Racing, as the Italian squad rounded out the Italian Grand Prix weekend at Monza. Lining-up alongside the South African in the penultimate round of the 2010 GP2 Main Series, Edoardo Piscopo was forced to retire early, after starting from the front row at his championship debut. Piscopo was hit after just two laps by another car while approaching the first chicane, while running in 4th place.

Race 2 proved quite linear, unlike the wreck-filled first heat of the weekend. Zaugg confirmed the great progression made by the team through the weekend. Unfortunately for Edoardo Piscopo it didn't end up the best possible way.

Trident Racing can draw a positive balance on the seres' home weekend, and thanks all the fans, sponsors, friends that supported the team during the Monza event.

Adrian Zaugg. "I was off to a great start, but Chilton, who was in front of me, did a bad start, and I was forced to lift the throttle. As a consequence, I lost several positions, but I've been able to recover thanks to a great-performing racecar, especially in the second half of the race. I had a pretty nice fight with Grosjean, and after a chicane cut the team told me to yield back the position. I believe that our overall pace has been great, and looking forward to the final round at Abu Dhabi, I think we need to focus on being competitive on new tires too."

Edoardo Piscopo. "I wasn't expecting to make a great start, as I'm still not used to the GP2 Series car's clutch, and I knew I would have lost some spots at the start. After the first corner I was running in fourth. While approaching the first chicane I was hit from behind hard by the car of Valsecchi. It's a shame because I was eager to do as more kilometers as possible and looking forward to another points spot. The weekend's balance is still positive though. After the end of the Auto GP season I'll focus all efforts to be back in the GP2 Series."
