Quaife-Hobbs In Points Charge At Barcelona

The third round of the 2014 GP2 Series entered its most exciting stage this weekend, with the running at the historical Monte Carlo venue. In a sensational environment, teams and drivers hit one of the most fascinating race in history, one that can provide boring, exciting or surprising stories. Today’s Feature Race provided plenty of drama and many episodes that conditioned its final chaotic outcome. After yesterday’s tough qualifying sessions that bought Adrian Quaife-Hobbs a 17th place, due to a mechanical problem with the brake bias, Team Rapax opted for an aggressive strategy for the feature race.

The plans made by the teams and drivers were jeopardized by two safety-car interruptions and a red flag situation lasted more than 30 minutes. Quaife-Hobbs ended up with a positive result, as he scored his fourth points finish in five races held so far in 2014. The British BRDC Super Star scored a 9th place at the end of a flawless and consistent race, just missing out on 8th place, which would have given Adrian pole, for reverse grid race 2.

The second race of the weekend saw the two Team Rapax drivers, Adrian Quaife-Hobbs and Simon Trummer,start from 9th and 25th place respectively. At the end of the 30-lap run, which featured two safety-car interventions, Quaife-Hobbs managed to make his way into the points zone by finishing in 8th place.

The next race for the 2014 GP2 Series will be in four weeks at the Austrian Red Bull Ring venue - the first time GP2 has visited this track which will run over the weekend of the 20/22 June.
