The team's performance was conditioned by a contact between the two drivers. Campana ended up spinning, while Berthon was assessed a drive-through by the stewards.

With the completion of the championship weekend at Monza, the GP2 Series will be back on-track in two weeks at the Singapore street circuit. The sensational frame provided by the venue will welcome Teams and Drivers to an exciting and fascinating night race.

Sergio Campana: “At the start I made a mistake and stalled my engine in the moments before the lights went off. That made the whole race much more difficult. Then on the second lap I was pulling alongside Berthon but he suddenly moved, pushing me on the grass at the side of the track.

I lost control of the car and ended up spinning. Luckily I could avoid the barriers, but the incident ruined my tires and I had to stop for a change. That prevented us from getting some spots back”.

Nathanael Berthon: “I was off to a good start, and I was sure I would have run a good race. The car was really quick in the technical questions but we were losing ground in terms of top speed. In a normal race it would have been something we could manage, but after the drive-through it became really tough to get some spots back.

Regarding what happened with Sergio, of course it's not a pleasing situation but we see these kind of things happen in every race when there are cars battling. In other occasions, when I was in the same position as Sergio, the stewards have not been equally inflexible”.
