The Andalusian team is placed as runner-up in the team standings while its two drivers shorten distances to the top positions.
The driver Norman Nato has achieved a brilliant victory at the Italian circuit of Monza. The french pilot dominated the race from start to finish, but his teammate Jordan King had to settle for a hard-fought fourth place. Since the Hungary Grand Prix in July none of the Racing Engineering drivers had returned to the podium until now.
“A good start from both drivers today. It was a bit close during the first corners, but it was OK to finish lap 1 in first and second. Norman was quickly up to pace and from there on dominated the race. We need to look into what happened with the other car as for some reason Jordan was not able to follow his teammate’s pace without stressing his tyres too much. He ultimately got passed by both Prema cars and a Rapax car cutting the corner, something we hope will still be investigated. First and fourth is still a good result for the team even though after the opening lap we expected a bit more, but we are back in the fight for the championships.” – said Sebastien Viger (Technical Director of the team) after the race.
The Italy Grand Prix is the third race from the end of this season. After a break of four weeks, the pilots will fight for the championship at the Malaysia GP and, a month later, they’ll finish GP2 Series 2016 at the Yas Marina circuit.
Racing Engineering currently rank second place in the team standings, while Jordan King and Norman Nato are in fifth and sixth place respectively. But these two races can change completely all the results!
From Badtoro we will look at the next steps towards the victory of Racing Engineering and their drivers. Go Racing!
