I would like to thank Maurizio Salvadori and the whole Trident team. They  made me feel at home since the first kilometer of testing together.”

Maurizio Salvadori: “I am really delighted to welcome Nicola to Trident. We already had some tests together and I must say that we have discovered a very well-balanced person, focused on what he is doing, quick and well prepared from a technical point of view. This series is very competitive and hard-fought, especially for rookies, but Nicola is definitely among the most interesting prospects in Italy and beyond. We will give our best to support him on his road to become a professional driver and to achieve the results we all hope for.”
