The last round of the 2016 GP2 Series was a mixed weekend for the Racing Engineering team
Saturday’s Sprint Race saw Norman Nato and Jordan King finish 7th and 8th but, with Norman qualifying 5th, the young Frenchman was hoping to finish on the podium but sadly an electrical problem that afflicted him during the race which caused an engine misfire and prevented his DRS from working meant that he lost positions rather than gain any.
“There are plenty of opportunities to overtake.”
This weekend sees Round 4 of the 2016 GP2 Series take place at the Red Bull Ring in Austria and below Alfonso de Orléans- Borbón, President of Racing Engineering, talks about the challenges of the circuit and how Racing Engineering have prepared for the busy weeks ahead.
