SERGIO PEREZ WINS IN BAHRAIN. BARWA INTER. CAMPOS TEAM RETURNS TO THE TOP OF THE PODIUM
The Spanish Barwa International Campos Team has run out victors in the 2nd leg of the GP2 Asia Series event which took place today in Bahrain. Mexican driver Sergio Perez recent signing for the team champions of the 2008 GP2 series won today's race from start to finish.
Sergio Perez drove a superb race dominating from the start until the chequered flag. He started imposing a strong race rhythm which nobody could keep up with, pulling away and built up a two and a half second lead which allowed him to control the race and he was able to conserve his tyres in the latter stages of the race. He was able to maintain a pace to assure victory although in the last couple of laps he was joined by David Valsechi but he managed to hold him off till the end without too many difficulties.
Not only has Sergio become the first Mexican driver to win a race in the Gp2 class but also he has become the first rookie to win a race this season. There can be no doubt that he is on a high and has demonstrated through hard work that the rewards for his efforts are there for all to see.
His team mate Vitaly Petrov has not had the best of weekends, hampered by physical problem throughout the whole of the week. Despite all this he showed courage to be fighting in the top ten in both races. Nevertheless the Russian driver gives the impression that he has more to give this season starting with the next race in Qatar.
Alejandro Agag, owner of the team was more than satisfied with the victory of his latest signing also having a driver in the top ten and last but not least the Barwa International Campos Team in position to fight for podium places despite the cancellation of the second race in Dubai when both drivers were in a privileged start positions for this race.
