Doohan and Novalak dominate in Sochi and Trident steals the victory to Prema
A better result couldn't arrive from the last race in Sochi: Trident Motorsport won F3 Team Title and got the second and third place in the Driver Championship. Before the seventh and final round of the FIA Formula 3 Championship, the team had twenty-five points to recover in the team standing and forty-three in the driver standing.
During Race 1, Jack Doohan lost any chance to fight for the Top Driver Title because he had a collision at the first corner of the track. He said: "I'm very sorry, I would have liked to win the Title, I think I was among the better this year, but I'm a rider, I'm fighting for the Team, but it's clear that I want to win!". On the other hand, the result of his teammate Novalak was excellent. From eleventh position he finished with a good fourth place, but nothing to do instead for David Schumacher who was dealing with physical issues, so he didn't hit the point area.
The adverse weather conditions led the stewards to cancel Race 2. Meanwhile in Race 3, a stunning first and third place from Doohan and Novalak arrived.
The Team Manager, Giacomo Ricci commented afterwards: "Winning the Team Championship and claiming the second and third place in the driver standing makes us very proud. We did our best to achieve this outstanding result in a series featuring true motorsport excellence in terms of professionalism and competition. I would like to thank all the drivers and the technical staff for their excellent work during the whole championship.This important day in the history of Trident Motorsport must be a motivation to keep us constantly on this high level".
The three young Trident drivers deserved this success because with their precious seasonal results they brought the team on top step of the F3 Championship podium, snatching it from the competitive Team Prema. Congrats to Trident Motorsport for the achievement!
