The long winter break for racing was over for the GP2 Series too as after the GP3 Series test held last week, teams and drivers of GP2 lined-up at Jerez for their first collective session of 2012. All the teams started the set-up and fine tuning work on their cars before the start of the championship.

Trident Racing went on-track with the team's two 2012 drivers, Julian Leal and Stéphane Richelmi. After a precise work of scheduling, the engineers have successfully gathered some positive feedback from the data collected. Reliability proved great two. Both the Trident Racing Dallaras run absolutely flawlessly.

Leal took advantage of the first day of testing to be back in shape after a long period of rest. The Colombian 21-year-old has been brilliant during the 2nd day of testing and ended up being into the top-three of the charts. He's been one of the less lucky racers though as he had to abort three flying laps due to the red flags.

Richelmi positively impressed the team too. The 21-year-old Monaco-based racer will face his maiden GP2 Series season and has progressively got closer to the top-10, confirming that he can progress kilometer-by-kilometer. The really positive balance of this test also confirmed that the team is working in the right direction. A positive outcome is expected in a 3-day test at Barcelona before the first round of the season at the Malaysian Sepang circuit
