Today has been a difficult day for Trident Racing. In the early morning Gimmi Bruni had to remain for a long time in the garage because of an electric problem while Andreas Zuber finished his test heavily crashing into the barriers because of a brake failure. His chassis has been irreparably damaged. During the afternoon Gimmi drove some laps but, despite a change of engine, he had to wait in the garage because of many new electric problems. In the last fifteen minutes the team tried to make him go for some fast runs with new tyres but again he was stopped by the red flag.

GIMMI BRUNI # 26
46 laps in total - best lap 1'25"105

"Today my program consisted in a race simulation, a check of the Valencia set-up, and in some fast runs but, as often happens in motor-racing many different problems happened together destroying all the plans. At the end of such a day the final red flag has been a proper conclusion. But if wrong things must happen it's better today than next week".

ANDREAS ZUBER # 27
18 laps in total - best lap 1'24"316

"The rear brakes betrayed me just when I was approaching the first corner, the fastest point of the circuit, anyway I came out from this situation unscathed. For the car was not the same but the team immediately reacted and next week it will be alright. I'm an optimist because of my nature and even if today has not been pleasant I'm already thinking about Valencia, a track which I love and where I already set a pole position with the Renault World Series car. I hope to do well with the GP2 car too".
