SCUDERIA COLONI STILL UNLUCKY IN BARCELONA

Bad luck kept hampering Scuderia Coloni's performance in Barcelona. After the good pace showed by the drivers in yesterday's feature race, and considering the great drive by Alberto Valerio despite a closed exhaust, the team was hoping for a strong comeback, but things went differently. At the start, delayed by some minutes due to an oil leak from Sergio Perez's car in the warm-up lap, Vladimir Arabadzhiev's race took immediately a bat path: the Bulgarian driver, starting on the 10th row, had to avoid the stalled car of Michael Herck, losing time and some positions. Then, fighting in the back of the field, he didn't manage to find the right pace and finished the race in P19, which was exactly his starting position.

Meanwhile Alberto Valerio made a good start from the 14th spot on the grid, gaining one place on Ho-Pin Tung despite being forced on the grass. Unfortunately, the brazilian driver was hit by Jules Bianchi in the last chicane: the car spun and the engine stalled, meaning race over.

Anyway, Scuderia Coloni will immediately have the chance to forget the Spanish event and concentrate on a new challenge, because the GP2 Main Series will get back on track next weekend in Monte Carlo.
