GP3 Sprint Race: Trident Motorsport

Luca Ghiotto was the star of the day as he fought back to third place after starting from the back. The championship leader put up a brilliant display of talent to maintain the championship lead, despite having not scored a point in the Feature Race.

Starting from the rear of the pack, Luca delivered a brilliant recovery, showing class and determination en-route to a great podium finish. He started well, without a single hiccup, and pushed harder and harder, catching his opponents lap by lap. Ghiotto completed several successful passing attempts but stayed smart and consistent even in the closing stages. He leaves his home track with a 14-point margin over his closest championship challenger.

Team-mate Amaury Bonduel, who took-off from the 16th position, recovered well up to P12.

An extremely good result for the rookie who also showcased his quick learning abilities and easily managed to put his engineer’s advice into practice. Overall, it was a well fought weekend for Bonduel, who improved his performance session after session, lap after lap, and gained lots of experience for his future endeavours.

Unfortunately, Artur Janosz missed the sprint race due to a mechanical issue.

The Pole missed the sprint race due to a clutch issue that emerged before the start. During the formation lap, he realised that his car wasn’t behaving as expected and diagnosed a clutch problem, coming back to the pits. He decided to start from there, in order to avoid any possible contact, but then came in to retire after the first lap.
