"Wow, where do I begin...

Based on the Pre-season race here, and my testing this week I had very low expectations.

In Q1 I was able to beat my personal best by 0.1 which is always nice, but Marco and Juhani were clearly faster than me so that confirmed my earlier "fears". Earlier in the day when I ran my last test I made the decision to go with 1 stop because the balance of the car was absolutely useless on 2 stop fuel load, I don't know what caused it, maybe it was even in my head... but the 1 stop felt so much better.

I was very worried at the start, someone at the back was lagging and didn't get to their gridslot so the cars were standing still for 90 seconds (!!!), needless to say my engine temperatures were really high. I was even thinking of PM'ing the director to ask for restart, but just then the lights came up. I got a pretty good getaway, but I forgot my tyres would be stonecold after the long wait, so I went very deep in to turn 1, almost hitting Marco. I managed to get some good traction from the outside and accelerated past David and Alessandro going in to Turn 2 for P2.

There were some lag spikes around lap 4-5, during one of these I unfortunately spun exiting Turn 10 and was almost hit by Alessandro because I had disappeared from his screen.

After that the lag ended and I tried to get back in rhythm. This was a little difficult at times because David was making some mistakes and he kept dropping back ahead of me but not close enough to pass, so that cost me some time during the first 15 laps or so.

When everyone pitted I knew I had a very good shot at victory, I kept pushing at the limit and managed to beat my personal best with this setup by 0.020 :).

When I made my pitstop I came out right behind Kevin Brents, one lap later he made a mistake going on to the final turn and I managed to outbrake him going in to Turn 1. We had a nice battle going there with him catching up to me and me taking some risks in the braking zone to keep him behind.

A few laps after that Marco and Kevin made their pitstops and the gap between myself and Marco was hovering around 5.5-6.0 seconds. Then I knew that the victory would be mine so I just started turning the engine down to boost 3 because I was worried that the engine would die after the overheating in the start.

So... my first victory at a track where I thought I might get a 6th-7th if lucky, but I guess that's the way it always seems to go.

I'd like to thank Sharon, Chris and all the other behind the scenes people who made this race possible. From what I understand of the situation it was a very big effort from these people to give us this whole weekend.

Sorry for the long write-up :)."

"Good race, without 1st lap. I'm really getting fed up with people hitting me on the first lap. Luckily my patience is still holding me up. Had to push all the time and i'm very happy that i managed to keep one of torrent motorsports cars behind me.
The good thing is that it looks we are making progress. So hepufully in Barcelona we will be even closer to top 10 racing"

"Well, at the start I was very confident as I knew that I had good strategy for race. After lights went green I gained 2 places, then someone had slow traction out of turn one and I backed down just a bit to avoid crash, doing that tough made Mark Aalberts crash into me as he did not let off the gas and after I lost my vehicle someone other smashed hard into me because I was sideways on the track, so there I was dead last with yellow suspension and back wing. After that I started overtakeing people and fortunatly for me there were some dnfs wich allowed me to fight for higher places, tough in the pits I lost much time due to damage (stop was 6 seconds slower than expected).
In gereral I would have realy liked to be on podium because I had realy good chanche of being there, tough P4 is not so bad and hope that I have more luck next time."

"Good start, avoided the start line disater and made it thru turn 1 cleanly. Got caught up in a bottleneck out of turn 10. Two cars got together coming out of the corner and spun right at the apex. Everyone behind just piled into each other to avoid them. I got caught up in it and came out with both front left suspension damage and rear suspension damage. The car was very twitchy throughout the rest of the race, having much oversteer in corner 4 in particular. By the end of lap one I was in 10th, and by the end of lap 3 I was in 6th. The car was overtaking othr cars well, mainly I think because I was on a light fuel load. Lap 6, Pedro overtakes me into 1, I overtake him back into 4. Same lap I made my first driving mistake of the season and got too much of the curb in 11, spinning the car around. The car was a handful with the damage from lap 1 and I got back around and continued in 10th. Pitted on lap 12 and again on lap 26. I was not getting as good fuel mileage as I did in testing so I took an additional 8L of fuel on the last stint. Still I was not getting good mileage so I selected boost 1 until about 6 to go, when I selected boost 5 again. From lap 6 on out, pretty uneventful, brought the car home in 10th. Not much more I could do with a damaged car and once again, been slow all week.

"Verry short race this time. If it wasnt for the crash i could have go for a podium finish i think with the strategie i was on and the amount of fuell i was carrying. Anyway first lap was hectic, i think i touched someone on the rear wheel sending him into a spin (turn 3) wich im sorry for but it happend in a split second and had no time to hit the brakes then to go in between te 2 cars wich resulted in a hit for on of them. Then the comming togheter with Kunkel, well i do think he was a bit agresive especialy first lap where he touched me at the hairpin and some parts where we where side by side. Then a lap laterr i got punted by him causing severe suspension damage and left me no choice then to park the car.

Bad luck next time better, this was a great chance to make up some points to front runners in championship as juhani failed to finish to."
