"What a race, I was pretty much pushing 100% this time from lap 1 until Roy crashed on lap43.

On Qualify 1 I did a reasonable lap, just wanted to make sure I was on Qualify 2. On Qualify 2, I did a very good lap personally, so congratulations to Roy who managed to do pole, we were close ... a good race was to come.

On Race I managed to do a very good start unlike what happened back on Sepang, and took 1st place before turn1 and it was vital to my chances to win, as I was going to stop earlier than Roy. I built a good gap before my pit stop which marginally was enough to hold the lead after Roy's pit stop. Again I managed to build a gap , this time bigger one as I had a flawless stint and Roy made a couple of mistakes. After 2nd pitstop, I was trying to mantain the difference between us until he crashed. Quite a shame...

Congrats to Stephane for his 1st podium finish :)"

"Really happy, obviously, to finally finish and take the first podium for the team and the second for myself, which could have actually come a lot earlier already. The first few laps were once again a mess, so it was important to get out of the midpack, which I managed, partly thanks to De Wit's help. First stint was just driving behind Trinka, even as a bit faster I didn't want to take any risks, and with a very good strategy I managed to get past him and again avoid the midfield hazzle. Stint 2 was a bit faster due to Yan tailing me, but he seemed to be on three stops, and after De Wit was taken out I could just roll to finish with 5-10 l extra fuel and minimal boost, seeing there was no reason to "challenge" Bruno. To finish in P2 is a bit surprising though, as the setup still wasn't that good, and even more of a miracle was to avoid any contact throughout the race. Certainly some luck, but after all weird misfortune in the last two races I think it was well deserved. Finally, thanks to the team for the ascension atmosphere and also mental support lol, all sponsors, the enlarged red bull can size for extra energy and also NVIDIA's rock solid ForceWare 158.24 drivers for preventing a bluescreen. Barca will be a lot harder, but with the newbuilt track you never know so let's wait and see what happens..."

"Very very very exciting race. Lots of stuff went down, too much to tell really. I was just glad to get through Q1, as what happend in Sepang still was fresh in my mind. But I got through it fortunately. Then on Q2, my lap was just terrible, made too many mistakes.
My start again was horrible, too much wheel spin and forgot the pit limiter again, allthough not as bad as in Melbourne. I went through on p12 on the first lap. I just decided to stay calm and go as fast as I could. I managed to overtake some people. Then after my pitstop, Ernesto was right behind me and he constantly was between 1-3 sec until the end of the race, which was hard. cause one mistake and I would lose the position for sure. Anyway I brought home my first podium, really happy with it. Well done to john as well, good podium. And Bruno.. dude.. what can I say really?!"

"What happened in lap 1 obviously changed my race, I can only wish it will never happen again. From that moment I had quite a good race, I was 17th at the end of lap 1 so finishing 4th tailing podium is all I could really do.
My congrats to Bruno for his hattrick and to John and Stephane for their deserved podium."

"First of all, I want to congratulate John for his second place. Very well done. It shows that we definitely improved since the last race.

Unfortunately I couldn't use the speed of my car because I did some mistakes. To be honest, this was one of my worst races.

My qualifying lap was ok, although I had splits for a better laptime, which would have put me in the Top 10. As I saw the times of the top drivers in Q2 with more fuel, I knew that our race pace was very good.

The race begun well and I could gain a few spots in the first laps. But in Lap 9 I spun and lost 6 positions. After that, I started my fight for the points from P13. But I couldn't get the maximum out of the car compared to testing, especially with lower fuel. In the final lap I lost one position as Greco overtook me and I was out of the points.

Nevertheless the race showed that we are working in the right direction. Hopefully we continue improving and I can turn it into better results in the next races."

"Too many cowboys at the starts of races. My race was ruined on the first corner of the race when Yannick crashed into my left rear and also stephane into my rear. I had damaged rear suspension and body damage and the car was very unstable around right handlers first stint so many were overtaking me. At the first stop i repaired the body but the suspension could not be so the car was better but still damaged, so I just drove to the end after that. Wasted race. The team had the pace for podums easily but both of us were taken out by overly aggresive drivers."

"Slight improvement over Malaysia pace and was enough for P11 this time. Had quite lonely race due to heavy car in first two stints which was probably not good strategy after all even considering the start position from the back."

"After first 3 races of the season I can say I`m really dissapointed. None of these races went how it should. In Bahrain we had a good pace to fight for the podium but instead I made a stupid mistake and got to midfield where I got hit. There isn`t much to do, just to forget this race and move on. In spain we will be back in full form. Congrats to Bruno for another win, 7th in the row... beat him someone pls. "

"I hate this track like Sepang. In qual i was about .5s over my pb and in race i was about 1s over my pace due a damaged suspension at start when i hitted David (my apologize) from behind at T1. I need to solve my troubles in braking setting because i'm not able to push at moment."

"Firstly, Qualifying. I was a little off my pace, but may not have made it into Q2 unless I got a lap right near my testing personal best.

The race, others made mistakes, and had failures, which enabled me to jump some positions. At the end, alot of people pitted later than I, which meant they had fresher tyres. I was on for 7th position, then with 2 laps to go, the engine did not work anymore.

I think Spain will have less opportunities to overtake compared to Bahrain. Again, I will aim to be closer to the front there.

"Nobody to blame except myself. I tried simply too much to close the gap in the final stint. I lost the car and crashed into the wall, so my mistake this time. Well, if you want to beat Bruno Marques, you have to go that risk. Being already 12 points behind, I couldnīt be satisfied with P2. Probably a mistake, ending now in worst case. Itīs not my day simply... Anyway, thx to my teammates for their work, our car was good, beating everyone easy apart from Marques. So we did definitely a step forward in our performance. Unfortunately Bruno too, but thatīs racing. Move on to Barca now in hopes to do it better there."

"Well first race of the season in WC for me at it didnīt went has i planned. At the start i didnīt force to much because there were some incident in T1, but in the first lap i caught Ernesto spun and i didnīt had room to go, so i had to stop the car and wait for him to go. After that i had a interesting battle with Piotr, and was able to pass him. Then after the 1 pit stop i catch Marconi but when i was trying to pass and get out of his back i made a terrible mistake and hit the wall...Some many names i called myself lol

Anyway thanks for Da Silva for letting me had this chance to run in the WC race, and also Pedro to give me this oportunity.

Congratulations to Bruno for the 3 win in a row, and to Stephane for the 1 podium ;)"

"Not too much to say... Disaster race for me in a track that I like a lot, starting in P13 itīs very difficult to avoid problems. Had the pace to be fighting for the points, but the lack of practice and the incident in the first turn, where Shaun pushed 3 cars, ruined my race. Very difficult to drive with the suspension damaged and a spin in turn 5 ended my race early this weekend.
Now we have to focus in Barcelona, home grand prix for me and I hope to improve my pace and return to the points, I use to be strong there and with hard work im sure that we are going to have the pace again.

"Everything went wrong for me today. Over half a second off my best in Qualifying, then in the race I couldn't get enough heat on the tyres in the formation lap, and had a slow first lap behind Piotr Karasiewicz, but couldn't pass him so the tyres remained cold. In turns 6-7 of lap 2, I picked up a lot of understeer, went wide, touched the sand with the rear right wheel and then was just a passenger.

Very disappointing as I had good race pace. Yesterday in testing I could start my 2-stopper stint from 1:32.3 in the first lap, so I hoped it would be a good step forward from Malaysia. A race to forget as soon as possible."
