Davide Rigon will be in Turkey with Trident

A few days after the great performance of David Rigon between the streets of the Principality came the confirmation that the young talent will be at the wheel veneto Dallara of Mauritius Salvadori and Trident team in Turkey. David will have the opportunity to continue working with the Milan team and the adventure in his GP2 Series Mains.

"Is come in this time of my confirmation for the Grand Prix of Turkey."Davide Rigon comment" Now I know very most of the team and we could continue our work. Just in Monaco we were able to make a good step forward nearly twice the points. Once again I will have to contend with an unknown track, and for this exploit, as I have done on other occasions, the most of the free to explore the route. On Thursday I will do a nice walk on the track with my ingengere to find points of reference and a few detached. What's more I exercise at home with the play station and watching a few on-board camera. Just for the championship would be good, in qualifying in the top ten and then play everything in the two races, aiming to win race 2, using the reversed grid. So far the gap with the top three teams was too high and this will be important to continue to work calmly, improving time to time. We still have some problems with the car, but I am sure that together with the team we can overcome them.

The start of the season in Barcelona unfortunately was not the best because of an engine is not in optimal conditions, while already in Monaco I managed to keep a good rhythm being the best among the Italians and the second rooky. Just arrived in Monaco, I have concentrated on weekends, starting immediately to work with the team. For me it was the first time on a circuit city and I do not have to go so close to the guard rail. The first laps were the most difficult because there was very little grip and only when you've reached the right feeling with the car and track can really push for overcoming this first step, it takes about 30 min and twenty steps. After the free practice the car was much improved and in qualifying, with a better understanding of the path, I could certainly do better. Starting from so back was a very difficult race and, with the benefit of hindsight, maybe we have asked too much of our tires delaying the pit stop. For there is little escape from the eighth position and the possibility of starting in pole position in race 2.

In the race on Saturday tires have struggled to come into temperature in the first step, but when you find the right pace, I managed to score several times for the fastest lap. We have certainly made a step forward compared to pre-season testing and the tender opening and are confident for the Grand Prix of Turkey. After Istanbul instead see what scenarios will open "
