GRS – On Ryabov’s pace

The Spanish team hopes to maintain the good results obtained at Motorland and does not rule out expanding its team on the grid.

Despite having only one rider at the start of the season, GRS is already making noise in the championship and has scored its first podium in 2021. Russian Vladislav Ryabov took the second step of the podium in the first race of the weekend at Motorland, breaking the Spanish team’s streak of more than a year without a podium finish. A result that, according to its Team Principal, Josep Trinidad, shows the team work carried out by GRS during this season; “the efforts, perseverance and work always bring results and in our case it is starting to be reflected in the results as competing with only one car is very difficult. I want to congratulate all the team staff for the great work they are doing and continue to focus on achieving the goals we have set for ourselves”.

With his second place, the Russian GRS driver completed his best weekend of the season. Ninth in the drivers’ standings and eighth in the rookies’ standings, Ryabov scored a total of 30 points at Motorland, which is good for him as he continues to consolidate his positions after the halfway point of the championship. A progression that Josep Trinidad has described as surprising given the limited experience that his driver had before arriving to the Spanish F4 single seaters; “the truth is that I am very surprised with our driver. Ryabov is having a formidable progression. In Motorland it was shown that when team and driver are in harmony and work with the same objective, the results come by themselves”.

With three races still to go, the GRS Team Principal hopes to maintain and improve on the progress shown at Motorland. In order to achieve this, he does not rule out expanding his rider line-up for the last remaining races of the season; “the objectives are to line up a second rider for the remaining rounds and that we manage to maintain the performance shown at Motorland”.
