Johnny Cecotto Jr. cruised to a steady 4th place for Trident Racing today at Monte Carlo, in the closing race of the GP2 Main series weekend in the Principality. The Venezuelan did a great job at the start, passing race 1's winner Sergio Perez and getting closer and closer to the front runners.

Cecotto kept controlling the race in the middle stages, and clocked some very fast laptimes in the closing laps as he collected his first points of the season, coming close to a podium spot. Adrian Zaugg drove a regular race too. The South African driver's race was conditioned by yesterday's incident. He managed to clinch the 12th spot at the end of a troublefree run.

Trident Racing is now ready to focus on the forthcoming trip at Istanbul, Turkey, for the third round of the 2010 season.

Johnny Cecotto Jr. "I'm extremely happy with how this weekend developed towards a great finish. At the start of the race I took off good, moving on Perez. Unfortunately, we touched and my steering wheel went off-center. There was no other damage, but I had to fight with a really sore right hand in the attempt to keep it straight. My laptimes were good though, as I started to lap really fast after passing Razia. It's a pity the race ended before I could catch Bianchi, who was sitting in third. I'd rather be driving for two or three laps more! I'm really satisfied, and if I think to my mistake in qualifying I can be sure I could have had a chance to podium. Now we have to start thinking to the next race."

Adrian Zaugg. "The only feedback I was expecting from Race 2 was about the car's overall competitive level. There were no chances to end up into the points zone starting from so far back. I can say we've been globally more competitive than in Barcelona, and that's a good sign for Istanbul."
