Good potential bad result

At the end of the Nuerburgring long race, Trident Racing did not get the result that was possible to achieve. Both drivers reached in fact the positions good to start tomorrow's race from the first row, but their good job vanished because of the adverse circumstances. Gimmi Bruni finished his race at lap 18 colliding with Valles while Andreas Zuber was seventh with three laps to go when a slow puncure occurred to his right front tyre. But their race was conditioned because of a communication from the race direction who gave a penalty to Valles. The penalty was wrong and the race direction communicate this just to the Spaniard team but not to the other competitors.

Gimmi Bruni # 26 - ritired

"I and Andreas were behind Valles when the team radioed us that there was a penalty for him. I waited for three laps, as per the rules, but he did not entered the pitlane so I tried to overtake him. At the chicane I was just behind him when he braked earlier, so I couldn't avoid the collision. I think Adrian should review his way of racing. I'm angry because the car was really good. Shouldn't we have chosen the wrong tyre pressure for yesterday qualifying today the story could have been different".

Andreas Zuber # 27 - 14.a position

"I started well avoiding Glock who stalled in front of me. I recovered seven positions and I reached my target, to start from the first row tomorrow, when three laps before the end a slow puncture ruined my front right tyre. I took the risk being able to cross the finish line on three wheels but I lost seven positions".
