The first round of the European GP2 season in Barcelona delivered no mercy for American Alexander Rossi, EQ8 Caterham Racing GP2 and Caterham F1 Team Reserve Driver.

After a difficult practice session changes were made to compensate for the increased track temperature and soft tyre. Alexander remained within the top ten for the entire session qualifying 8th, with a time of 1:29.893.

Alexander made an excellent start in race 1, while avoiding a first corner incident he was up to sixth place by the end of the first lap. Alexander was looking strong, managing tyres and maintaining pace for a top five or podium finish when he was forced to retire with a transmission failure on lap 18.

Following the race 1 result, Alexander was forced to start 21st for Sunday's Sprint Race. He made a promising start moving into 14th position by the end of lap two, but was unable to progress further taking the chequered flag in 14th.

Alexander Rossi: “Eighth is not exactly what I was looking for in qualifying but the car was much better than practice despite some understeer. I was feeling positive about being able to scoring points and a podium position for the Feature Race. The transmission failure was extremely frustrating - there is nothing else I can say. I had an awesome start but was boxed in avoiding the accident at the first corner which slowed my progress.

“It’s a shame as the car felt good and the team worked hard to find the proper balance. Until the failure, I know the pace and tyres were there to fight for a podium. I’m looking forward to Monaco in two weeks and scoring a lot of points.”
