Raffaele Marciello was rewarded with pole position at Silverstone .
Raffaele Marciello is beginning to reap the benefits of his hard work over the last months: the racing driver from the Ferrari Driver Academy obtained the second place behind Rio Haryanto in the sprint race 2 at Silverstone on 5th July. After an excellent start in third position, Marciello aimed straight for the podium, which he deservedly reached. His familiarity with the track, together with the experience gained with the tires, was decisive. Raffaele is currently sixth in the overall standings with 44 points. We at TWS are extremely pleased to support Lello in his success and we fully agree with his comment: “These achievements are nothing more than the result of the commitment we put in what we do day by day”.
TWS supports a young promising motorcycle racer:
“I founded SIC58 Squadra Corse, the motorcycle racing team dedicated to Marco, to help children who otherwise would never have the opportunity to race”. These are the words of Paolo Simoncelli, who decided to create a two wheel racing team in memory of his son Marco, who everybody called Sic. We at TWS share Paolo Simoncelli’s wish and do so by supporting Riccardo Rossi, a motorcycle racer from SIC58. Born in Genoa in 2002, Riccardo ran his first race and motorcycle test in the Adriatic Trophy of 30th October 2011 coming in at first place. In 2012 he came fifth in the Italian Speed Championship and first in the European Championship in Zuera. In 2015 he started racing for SIC58 Squadra Corse, for which he is taking part in the 2015 Championship also thanks to the support of TWS. In the 125 2T championship standings of April 2015 Riccardo is seventh with 19 points. By supporting Riccardo, we at TWS want to keep alive the memory of a motorcycle racer who is in all of our hearts and make sure that, in his name, Italian motorcycling can go on establishing itself worldwide.
Raffaele Marciello: excellent results in the Ferrari and Sauber tests in Barcelona.
excellent results in the Ferrari and Sauber tests in Barcelona.
Third place after 200 laps: here is how Raffaele Marciello, the rising star of the Ferrari Driver Academy, ended the test sessions in Barcelona before the Formula Two Grand Prix of Monte Carlo of 23rd and 24th May. But more than the position reached, what is really important are the words of Tony Cuquerella, Ferrari Chief Race Engineer: “It was like having an experienced Formula 1 driver with us”. By lapping in 1:26.648, Lello recorded the second fastest time at the wheel of cars running on medium and hard compound tires only. Even inside the cockpit of Sauber’s single seater, after an off-track excursion, he readily got back on track and completed 75 laps for a total of 350 kilometers. We at TWS who have been sponsoring Lello for quite some time share his pride and satisfaction for this important achievement, which is the result of his desire to put himself to the test and do his best, scrupulously following the work plan devised for him.
Marciello: «We are going in the right direction.»
Maranello (Modena), 5 April 2015
The three days of GP2 Series testing in Bahrain on the eve of the Easter break concluded the pre-season test program. Raffaele Marciello and Trident made the most of these tests to go through the work plan developed by the team’s engineers in view of the start of a season that promises to be long and particularly challenging. During the three-day Bahrain test Raffaele completed 75 laps of the Sakhir circuit with the best lap time of 1’39”720, just a tenth adrift of the virtual pole position in the overall standings. The next appointment for the teams and racing drivers of the GP2 Series is from 17th to 19th April, once again at the Al Sakhir circuit, for the first round of the 2015 calendar, running in conjunction with the Bahrain Formula 1 Grand Prix.
Raffaele Marciello on full throttle in Sepang
Lello came in just half a second adrift of Ericsson during the free practice session on Friday.
Raffaele Marciello, the young racing driver from the Ferrari Driver Academy who is proudly sponsored by TWS, made his practice debut as Sauber’s third driver in Malaysia with thrilling results: he came in just half a second adrift of Marcus Ericsson, his team mate with a year’s experience in F1. In TWS we are all looking forward to seeing Lello race again in Canada and in Austin, to support him with the same conviction as ever, happy to have the opportunity to follow him in his professional growth.
