GP Week : Issue 7
2007 was a slap in the face for the Brazilian team who, after two seasons of tasting champagne, had little to celebrate. When they realised in post-season testing that the car had been quick all along, the drivers were ousted and two proven race-winners employed in their place. Zuber and Maldonado have each got a point to prove and together should be competitive. The drivers have history however and the team might need to play politics. Andreas Zuber Pastor Maldonado Minardi Piquet Sports Trident has its reputation to salvage in 2008 after finishing as the lowest ranked Italian team in 2007. The squad has opted for two drivers in their second GP2 seasons, both of whom have form as former F3 champions. Conway will wish to forget a nightmare 2007, as will Tung, and the combination of these two driven and highly motivated drivers could prove to mark Trident out as dark horses for the championship. Watch them with interest. Trident Racing Mike Conway Ho Pin Tung Tough times at DPR meant that 2007 only really started to get going by the end of the season.

DPR Michael Herck Diego Nunes There are many who question how BCN was not replaced in the GP2 Series when the team positions were put out to tender again at the end of last season. As the only team to have never scored a victory, BCN’s history in GP2 could do with a new chapter. It looks unlikely to come in 2008. Testing has not looked overly positive, and the team continued to slug it out at the back in Asia. They need a miracle. Paolo Nocera Milos Pavlovic BCN Competicion GP2 insight >> 33
