Nice race but not finished

The good race of both Triden Racing drivers came to an end because of mechanical failures. At half race, Gimmi Bruni was fifth when the gearbox starting to failure loosing the fourth gear. Gimmi got on for another ten laps till his gearbox lost all the speeds. So Andreas Zuber became fifth e made a show in a dogfight with Giorgio Pantano. But his beautiful fight has been ruined by the on board extinguisher, who started by itself flooding Andi with its liquid. The liquid finished even on Andi's visor obsuring his view and forcing him out of track.

Gimmi Bruni # 26
"While I was fifth I lost the fourth gear. I went on but six laps later even the third was gone. Four laps after I had to stop because I remained with no speeds at all. What could I say? I am happy because the first part of the championship is over. The next tests at Le Castellet will be very good to put together again all the things and be alright again for the second part of the season".

Andreas Zuber # 27
"I was fifth. I was doing a great battle with Giorgio. I demonstrated I can manage an hard dogfight keeping the position with fairplay. Then, all of a sudden with five laps to go, the fire extinguisher started by itself and I got my visor obscured by the liquid. It was impossible to see the track anymore and so I spun. I would really like to swear but... patience".
