Trident Racing ended the first race of the Hockenheim weekend with a valuable points finish thanks to Adrian Zaugg. After moving on from 5th, the South African managed to drive a clean race, passing through several fights without making a mistake and finalizing a really important result for the whole team.

Johnny Cecotto was off to a great start from Row 6, before the Venezuelan was hit by another car on lap 1 and lost positions. Johnny eventually recovered up to 13th place, running on consistent laptimes.

The Hockenheim weekend will end tomorrow, with the running of Race 2. Zaugg is set to start from 2nd place, while Cecotto will take off from row 7. The start is set for 10:35 CET, with live coverage in Italy by RAI2.

Adrian Zaugg. “The race started with a great take-off, before I was pushed towards the outside by another car at turn 3. and lost positions. I've been really close to a spin but eventually I kept control. In agreement with the team, we decided for a late pit-stop, and after the change I found myself amidst Turvey and Herck. It's been tough, as I was clearly faster than Turvey but I couldn't find the space in. With three to go I finally made it, and with a clean racetrack my laptimes dropped consistently. I'm glad to have driven a great race, finally rewarding all the team of all the tough days we had in the past.

Johnny Cecotto Jr. “I believed it would have been a great day, because the start has been fantastic, I think I was in 9th at the first corner. At the braking point before turn 6 I tried to enter as wide as I could to close the line towards the apex. I was certain I would have climbed up even more, but a car hit me, I ended up off-track and I was passed by all the pack. After the pit-stop I held the fastest lap of the race for a lot of time, as a further confirmation of a potential we've been prevented to express.”
