Trident Racing ended up the eight round of the 2010 GP2 Main Series by scoring a top-10 spot on Race 2 at Spa-Francorchamps, as Adrian Zaugg took 9th place. After making a good start, Johnny Cecotto Jr. was forced to retire on lap 6, due to an off-track exit.

Despite the early concerns, the race was run on full-dry conditions. That didn't prevent the safety-car from being deployed several times, with the race resulting quite segmented. After a tough weekend to tame for the team at the Belgian Venue, the team is now looking forward to the home event of the season at Monza. The ultra-fast Italian racetrack is definitely something unique on the series' schedule.

Adrian Zaugg. "My start has been good, and when the safety-car came back to the pits for the first time I've been able to pass Razia, keeping a solid pace. During the second half of the race I started suffering from traction issues, and had an hard time in trying to keep behind a recovering Valsecchi. In the end, I was forced to settle and let him go".

Johnny Cecotto Jr. "I was taking off on a grid spot where the asphalt was still wet, but in the end my start ended up being a lot better than I expected. We had a great car in terms of top speed, and during the first laps I passed a lot of cars. Then, at corner 14, my car snapped off control, making me end up in the runoff area. I'm looking forward to analyze the telemetry data because a can't understand the reason of such a rapid loss off control. I wasn't on a kerb or taking too many risks."
