Team Rapax scores hard-fought points at Barcelona

May 11, 2014 12:21 am

One month has gone since the opening round of the 2014 season, and the GP2 Series made its way back on-track at Barcelona. The series’ Spanish meeting started with some tough luck for Team Rapax. The bad fortunes started in qualifying when Adrian Quaife-Hobbs  who ended up in 22nd.   As a consequence, Race 1 started with a considerable handicap. On the other hand, Quaife-Hobbs delivered a spectacular comeback: the British BRDC Super Star racer recovered up to the 9th position by the end of the 36-lap run. For him it’s the third straight points finish.
“After the outcome of qualifying yesterday, having scored two points is an handsome reward for our efforts. The opening stages of the race have been quite eventful, and after the first laps it hasn’t been easy to keep a consistently quick pace because the soft tyres wore out pretty fast. After the pit-stop, I went back-on track determined to get more places back, but again the tyre wear conditioned the last third of our run so it was difficult to pass our rivals. Anyway I’m happy with my position because it enables me to keep fighting for points”.
