New Zealand´s Mitch Evans and Indonesia´s Sean Gelael claimed a commanding 1-2 at the Red Bull Ring with their Dallaras GP2/11 entered by Pertamina Campos Racing
Pertamina Campos Racing continues its busy schedule in the GP2 Series and now the Alzira-based team heads to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix. The duo of Sean Gelael and Mitch Evans scored a 1-2 finish for Pertamina Campos Racing at the Red Bull Ring. Perfect pit strategy and faultless driving produced this historic result in difficult conditions and now the Spanish team expects to repeat the run at Silverstone, the race track next to the picturesque town of the same name and Whittlebury.
Silverstone features iconic straights and a mix of ultra-high speed corners and requires a low downforce package. At the same time, there are several traction zones where cars can gain or lose a lot of time.
Pirelli has chosen the P Zero Orange hard compound and the Yellow soft but variable weather makes strategy hard to predict and anything can happen at this track.
Evans climbed to second in the GP2 Series´ standings after the Austrian event on 56 points. Indonesian Gelael sits 12th on 24 points in the drivers´ standings. Campos Racing lies 4th in the teams´ standings on 80 points.
Track action starts on Friday at 12.00 (local time) with free practice session, which takes place before qualifying (15.55). Race 1 (Feature race) is due to start on Saturday at 14.40 and race 2 (Sprint race) will kick off on Sunday at 09.25.
