Summer day 12 – Alvaro Parente

Alvaro Parente – 16
When Christian Vietoris picked up a mild head injury, he relinquished his GP2 position to Alvaro Parente while focusing on DTM. Alvaro picked up 8 points for Racing Engineering, coming second behind Davide Valsecchi in the feature race at Monaco. When Christian returned, Alvaro moved to Carlin where he replaced Oliver Turvey. Unfortunately, he’s so far failed to pick up any points for Carlin, finishing ninth in both races at Silverstone despite qualifying second. He’s also had three retirements (one classified) for the team.
His bad luck continued as the Portuguese driver headed to Spa for the 24-hour race, giving his seat back to Mikhail Aleshin. But the McLaren MP4-12C he should have driven didn’t get more than a few laps into the race, while Aleshin managed a double finish. So all of Alvaro’s eight points go to Racing Engineering, and Carlin are still waiting for him to get them some.

Points: 8 (Racing Engineering), 0 (Carlin)
Best qualifying: 2
Worst qualifying: 15
Best finish: 2 (Monaco feature)
Worst finish: 18 (Valencia sprint)
Retirements: 3 (1 classified)
