On the stunning frame provided by the Valencia Street Circuit, the 2010 GP2 Main Series entered its fourth round. The series' single qualifying session decided the starting grid for Saturday's race day. Trident Racing's Johnny Cecotto took 12., while South African Adrian Zaugg ended up in 15.

In the end, Qualifying results didn't reflect the team's and the cars' true potential, although chances and expectations for an happy ending are standing still for Race 1.

The weekend at Valencia will continue tomorrow with the first race of the event, set for 15:40 on a 34-lap distance. Race 2 will be starting on Sunday at 10:35. Live TV coverage will be provided by RaiSportSat.

Johnny Cecotto Jr. "It was the first time I was running on this track, and I immediately found a good feel with it. I'm glad of how the day ended, even though I regret losing some time during my last lap due to blocking. If we look at the results, without that incident I could have been easily into the top-8. However, I'm aware of my good potential, and to have a car that can enable me to score valuable points. I hope that tomorrow's race will develop in a linear way, with no issues, and to clinch a well-deserved good result."

Adrian Zaugg. "I made a mistake and I shouldn't have. I started running quite good in Practice, as I found a good balance with the car and a positive feeling with the track. I was being really optimistic about ending up at the top end of the charts in Qualifying, until I locked brakes in the closing stages and damaged a tire. My day ended without taking advantage of my second set of tires. In that lap I had improved by 0.2 seconds, with the solid possibility to end with a good spot on the grid, and then it was over. It's a pity, but I'm really focused in recovering on tomorrow's Race 1."
