One of the major talking points following last weekend’s GP2 Series round at Monza was the on track behaviour of Trident’s Sergio Canamasas. While mixing erratic driving and occasional bouts of pace is nothing new for the Spaniard, Canamasas’ Monza record was impossible to ignore during Sunday’s Sprint Race. As noted in last week’s GP2 … Continue reading “Thoughts about Sergio Canamasas and motorsport discipline”
