|"It is good feeling to win race, especially after what happened in China with my disconnection. I feel sorry for Bruno and Bono, after theirs retirement I was just cruising with win in bag. See you all in Monaco."|
|"Q: Realy disapointing, messed up all my laps and had to settle with 19th position with 0,6 behined poleposition.|
I knew it was hard to pass here but at the start I was more concerned at keeping my car out of contacts, I managed to get to 11th position after first lap and no signs of damage.
After that I had to pass 2 Roaldo guys and Disley and Dewit.
At the time of first pitstops Bono and Marques disapeard wich moved me up to 4th position. It was pretty much lonely race after that.
26 laps to go I was 3s behined Ronny but I had to save fuel so I couldnt realy push to try and catch him, passing would have been even more diffucult so I was ok with my 4th position. On final lap Karol and Ronny had disconnection so I was lucky to get the 2nd position.
Congrats to Malezic and Twister for the win. See you in Monaco. "
|"Thanks to the teammates for their preparation help with this race.|
Had a good qualifying session, got inside the top 5.
I got passed by a few drivers in the race, but towards the end I caught back up to Tali a bit. Not sure if he was cruising or not though. Obviously if you add the 4 dnf drivers into the mix I'd be further down."
|"Qualifying was quite difficult. I haven't been very fast on one lap so my time wasn't a big surprise. I knew car would be better in race so I wasn't too worried.|
I had some lag issues at start so i tried to just keep moving safely. Then someone hit me on inside causing damage and lost positions. I drove rest of the race with damaged car as fixing it could have cost too much time.
|"Qualifying: 10th, but could have been much better if didn't get two of my laps spoiled by traffic. But it is the same for everyone, so it's no big deal. |
Race: Got a good start and had some nice battles all through the race, some pretty rough ones. I was running 7th when there was just two laps to go, and then I got two places for free when Poniatowski and Hähnel got disconnected I think. Not a nice way to end a race, I am sorry for you guys. Shame for my new team mate Mathieu Prevot for his pit problem, otherwise we have gotten even more points. But 5th in the end is just a fantastic result after some tough races without points, and I want to dedicate this result to everyone inside Roaldo Racing Sim1gp.com for their nice effort to bounce back as we have done. Now we look forward to Monaco and hoping to bring home some points there too!"
|"Well what can i say pace looked great before race|
But when q started i could not match my form and in q i was only 8th
anyway racestart and was being very carefull when i gor hit from behind and had damage
Then i tried to gain places but lost my rear and and i apolgize to Nilson
Anyway he got his payback pushing me onto the grass hehehe
After my spin on lap 1 or 2 i was almost dead last and a scoring points was not on my mind at that time
But my pitstops were perfect and leapfrogged many drivers
And i was lucky that some people has some failures in the end so 7th after alll that has happened i am still happy"
|"Happy to finish in points again after all problems. Qualifying brought worst result since Monaco 2007, car was very tricky to drive in S3 somehow. At the start my team-mate braked late and I had to avoid through the sandbank, losing further time, but luckily escaped damage.|
From thereon race pace turned out to be good in comparison with some "hotlappers", but unfortunately it's very difficult to pass on this circuit. Had a few nice battles and during the last laps I tried to put pressure on De Wit, but his lap times remained identical to mine, just like last year here. Somewhat lucky in the end but that's racing, car set was not up to the usual "Precision standards", so happy with this today and the points scored for DHR."
|"nothing much to say, really happy to have served my penalty and scored 2 points after starting from the pitlane... couldn't have hoped anything better!"|
|"Decided to race a few hours before official practice started.|
Had been sick last 3 days, didnt feel good on raceday either, but when i couldnt get a hold of Petter Kassa i decided to give it a try.
With only about 150 laps practice i didnt know what to expect.
Qual was amazing. Manage to set pb, 0.4 behind pole and P15 was a fact.
Race started out pretty good, tryd to play it safe first lap.
After 3 corners i noticed i had to play abit tuff atleast as i got passed by a few guys.
After a few laps i got into the rythm, didnt really do any major error during the whole race.
Pit stops worked good, had some very fun battles out on track!
P6 with some luck due to 2 disconnects at the end of the race was way better then i hoped for.
Gratulations to my team mates, Disley for a great 3rd, and Kaasa for a strong 2nd in WS!
|"Qualy : Increidibly close ! Only +0.48s from P1 to P17 (me). I was happy with my lap, very near to my PB, but wasn't enough.|
Race : Good start, but in T4 I lost some positions to avoid a crash. Most part of the race I was alone, just trying to increase the gap with the guys behind me. Finally 1 point with P10, a lot of luck for me because Karol and Ronny suffered disconections. After all, really happy to score a point for the team in our local GP :)
Now let's go to Monaco !"
|"Good qualifying 1 tenth behind my personnal best|
race : very hard start due to my graphic pb i couldn't follow a car without lagging, i was 9 th before my first pit and 8 th after, i made a mistake in my second pit where i braked too late and my mecanics didn't change my tyres so did one more lap to finally do my 2 nd pit stop.
My aim was just to finish to learn and i did it, a little bit disapointed because without my mistake i could be 5 th or 6 th..."
|"well , pretty good race for me |
i start from pitlane with greco , i try to follow him in the first stint
i pit at lap 18 , good second stint and pit at lap 41
final stint with boost 7 , 4 dnf and i finish 12th
next monaco , have fun : )"
|"First of all, thanks to the SB Motorsports Team to give me the seat tonight.|
Q Session went very well, I adjusted my setup a bit before and was able to gain again a bit, so I was able to do my PB time on this track. The field was so close, really fascinating, from P1-P17 0.5 seconds. A very strong field!
As I had shortened my 1st gear, start went pretty well and I was able to get one positions, although braking a bit too late into T1 I did not hit anyone.
I was battling quite hard with Mikkonen and Saxen, but everything kept clean. Then I spun and lost some positions. My rear was quite unstable in those laps, still I did not stall and was able to continue.
I stopped a bit later then the guys before, so I fell a bit down the order after my first stop, but with the fresher tires I shortened the gap and was on Saxens tail again. The group infront of me overtook Lacombe and I tried that aswell, but then suddenly he braked way to early for T 11 and so I lost my front wing. I guess one of his tires was damaged. After my stop I pushed hard to maybe gain at least some positions. In the last 15 laps I saved my car.
I'm a bit disapointed as my pace would have been enough for point positions. But thanks again to SB for letting me drive tonight. And also thanks for the guys I battled with, I enjoyed it!"
|"I finish my first race in Auto GP World Championship, for the first race, not so bad.|
I do a good lap in qualify but i can do 2 tenths quicker.
In race, i tried to keep my wing at the start, i lost lot of time and positions and my laptimes are slow. My race setup has been bad. i will work hard my setup for Monaco because today i am really not happy.
Bye and see you all in Monaco."
|"A joke ! this sums up my race... |
A great start, from 7th to 5th, i want to pass a competitor before me, but i take the kerb and i go to the gravel... I'm furious !
I decide to do one stop, but that was an error... I come back to the 6th position but i have no tyres... i loose positions and i decide to do a stop but my left front tyre explode in S3...
So, i take the Hard tyres, An error again... i'm 1.5/2sec slower, my aim was to reach the finish... and finally i take the Soft tyres to do the fastest lap in order to comfort me...
See you next time in Monaco !"
|"And again a disappointing weekend....|
Q: I was a bit off pace
R: In the first lap I got some damage again, wich cost me about 0.3 per lap....
And then disconnect from server in last lap.... bad luck over and over again.
I was again satisfied with my Q result, had no traffic and only tenth and a half away from pole, so it went good
The race started good as well, I could gain a position and found myself on P4. In the beginning I wanted to avoid much risk with the heavy car and followed the top3. Then Ronny had closed the gap and we both have had similar pace and followed the field. Then Ronny went to pit 1 lap earlier and could leapfrog me. I have planned the same for 2nd stop but somehow Ronny couldnt gain the gap to me and I could close to him within a couple of laps.
My first overtaking attempt didnt work but one lap later I could go through on the straight, thanks to Ronny for not defending hard! Yea then I saw Dodos 12 secs gap, I knew it was nearly impossible to catch not to thinking of passing him, but I decided to try at least. I could close up to 7 secs but then it was senseless because of the less laps remaining. So 2nd was fine though. But then in last lap, crossing the line my connection failed and now I got nothing. Thats the truth in our little electronical art of racing. It never happened to me and it wouldnt yesterday as well, if we have had no delay. But okay who could know this, Iguess no one.
|"Thank Christian.....it was fun even if i was off of my and WC pace."|

|"Nightmare race, was very unprepared for the race and only had chance to try the 2010 track an hour before qualifying. Made a mistake into T1 and had to pit for a new front wing. After the first pit stops I had to let Malezic through and had a car behind me trying to pass, but ran into the rear of me and my car failed to turn right, retired the car."|
|"Once again a disappointing result. The 3rd DNF of the season, and in all it wasn't my fault. Qualifying was very close again, but managed a good lap and got P2. In the first few laps I had an amazing battle with Bruno, but I managed to stay on P2. I was struggling a lot during the first stint, so I decided to pit early, to try to close the gap to Domagoj. I stopped at the pits and then suddenly I got hit from behind by Bruno, right rear wheel off, engine died, end of race. Very disappointing again, but what can I do? 3rd time that I get taken out and it's not my fault. Lets hope for better luck in Monaco."|
|"I won't comment on this race, just that I'm really sorry for what happened between me and Bono."|

|"Not much to say of this weekend. We did a good job in the tightest qualy of FSR but a electrical problem made impossible even to start the race. I was really frustrated as it was our home gp and we had the chance of doing a good job. On the other hand David made a great job and got 1 more deserved point. Now it´s time to put our mind in the next race and work hard to be in a better shape in the streets of monaco."|
