Bad weekend for Racing Engineering drivers. Alexander Rossi and Jordan King couldn’t score any points on Sunday although King’s good results on Saturday could make him think about reaching the podium. The drivers suffered problems with their tyres and they crossed the finish line in lower positions than they expected. The changes in air and temperatures conditions during the race did not favoured them.
Despite on Jordan being one of the favourites, he finished 12th. After finishing in the fifth position on Saturday, his aim was reach the firsts positions. However, the bad conditions of his tyres made him lose positions and he could not repeat Saturday good results, when he fought for the firsts positions.
On the other hand, Alexander finished 19th on Sunday. The damage of his tyres in the last laps, made him go into the pits for fresh ones. The American driver did not shine this weekend. On Saturday, he could overtake some drivers during the firsts laps but a change of tyres consigned him to the 12th position.
GP2 goes on holiday for a month. The drivers will return to the competition at Spa Francorchamps in Belgium.
