History
In 2006, Trident was founded in order to compete in the GP2 championship which, at the time, was Europe’s second highest-ranking single-seater formula. They managed to secure a place and was one of three teams that lodged requests for the thirteenth entry. From then on, Trident placed teams in the GP2 Asia Series from 2008 through until its cancellation in 2011. Their final season was their best season where they finished fourth in the drivers standings. For 2012, they entered into the GP3 series where they replaced Barwa Addax team where they only fielded two drivers instead of the usual three. They expanded briefly to three before returning to two. Although they had a few poor years in GP3, they saw an up turn of events with Luca Ghiotto in 2015 and Antonio Fuoco in 2016 where they finished second and third in the constructors championships. They made their debut to FIA Formula 3 in 2018 and their debut in Macau Grand Prix in 2019 where they ran Olli Caldwell, David Beckmann and Alessio Lorandi with Lorandi finishing highest in 5th, Beckmann in 9th and Caldwell sadly retiring from the race.

FIA Formula 2
Trident competed in the GP2 series from 2006 through until its end in 2016 where their highest placing was 5th in the team standings in 2014. They switched to FIA Formula 2 when they made the initial change, where they have consecutively placed 10th. The team was represented by Haas F1 test drivers Arjun Maini and Santino Ferrucci who switch from GP3 midseason following a collision at Silverstone between Ferrucci and teammate Maini, resulting in a two round ban for Ferruci and a terminated contract. In 2019, the team signed Giuliano Alesi and Ralph Boschung. Ryan Tveter then replaced Boschung at the Red Bull Ring before he was replaced by Dorian Boccolacci. Boschung returned for Hungary before stepping aside due to sponsorship issues and returning once again at Sochi. His time ran short when he was replaced by Christian Lundgaard at Abu Dhabi.
