|"Q1 : pretty good lap, not my PB but enough to be P1|
Q2 : i made some idiot mistakes, 0.4s off my Q2 pb, i was lucky to be P3 and the poleman of hard tyres group.
Race : I take an enormous start, fighting with one twister car during the snail. I let the twister car pass to focus on my pace and not to fight for nothing.
The car was really good today, and with no damage for the first time this season, i could show my pace. I pushed hard during the first stint, and i managed the gap saving the mechanic at stint 2 and managed the front brake in stint 3 ( which afraided me. )
A very good race today. I enjoy it !"
|"Sh*t Q2 as usual, good race, wrong strategy obviously but nice to get P2."|
|"My quali pace wasn't good, but P8 was still quite disappointing in Q2.|
In the race I got a good start, but got hit and damaged on the first lap which meant I lost a few tenths per lap for the rest of the race which was extremely frustrating.
In the middle of the race I caught the Patrick, Rasmus train where Patrick had low downforce setting compared to Rasmus' higher setting, which made so that Rasmus pulled off in S2 and then gave a long slipstream to Patrick on the main straight, which made my job extremely hard. Fortunately Patrick made a mistake which allowed me to catch and pass Rasmus a few laps later.
In the last pitstop I had to wait for Moises to make his pitstop before making mine, so that lost me some more time and a chance to fight for P2.
All in all quite frustrating race where nothing seemed to go right, I'll take P3 though."
|"4th place might seem pretty good, but to be honest we should have been 2nd and 3rd rather than 3rd and 4th and thats due to me making a small mistake on the first lap and giving myself and Ivar damage which im really kicking myself about. Apologies to the team for that, we work so hard and had a great car and its just a shame that things worked out as they did."|
|"wow what can i say again!!|
The Q1 was not at all what i expected it only 14th
If i could do my pb or better then i had reached Q2 but it was not meant to be today!!
Anyway i tried to battle hard the 1st laps and i was goign like a knife trough butter...
I started 14th and i was 4th in the 3rd lap
But the guys ahead were too fast today
The only frontrunner who was struggling was Tali who started on pole
I had some great battles with Tali,<allorgi at the end and Gosbee too
Really hard but fair battles some people touched me at teh start
Again suffering small damage to my car but its life nothing to do about this
Had some close moments with Tali but nothing major he span at 1 point and had to avoid him
In the end i made 1 big mistake a high speed spin upcoming the long backstright lucky no 1 got into the tangle and lost positions to Keitley and Kalamees
I am really happy about this 5th place infront of Tali who was on pole but his racepace seemed not so good compared to his Q1 pace
Very clean racing who i raced hard but fair sometimes to close to contact but tahts racing:)
lets go on to Monaco"
|"Qualyfing was fine getting into Q2. The plan was to stay in pit and start with hards, but I saw a lot of people doing his Q2 time with hards, so I try it. It was my first time with this tyres and fuel so it did not work well. P10 was ok anyway.|
Race was insane during the first laps, a lot of cars overtaking me. I had a very low topspeed so I couldn't challenge anyone. I just keep behind all the action and just attack when was need it.
I tried to do my race and finally I was close to get P6, but Patrick de Witt make an awesome job defending the position and was impossible to overtake him, so P7."
|"Q1 - Lap was ok but missed out Q2 by 0,03 - P12 , not really satisfied with that|
The start went pretty good.
I gained a few places in the first lap and my pace seemed to be ok for the first laps of the race.
I quickly noticed that I was struggling a lot in the first stint with max fuel and hard tires.
I had a pretty intense fight with Rob in the first part of the race but then Eduard joined and sadly took me out in lap 15 in T1.
This gave me some moderate damage and some crucial time lost but in the end I managed to climb a few positions back with a mistake-free race and a good 2nd and 3rd stint.
8th in the end.
The maximum I could achieve after the Lap 15 incident.
Congrats to Morgan for his epic win."
|"Q: Pole, first time I did q2 lap with that setup, so cant be unhappy.|
R: No grip, no pace, lots of spins, no idea why as setup felt great and pace was good at testing."
|"Q1: 34:368, Was an average lap and was into Q2 which was good.|
Q2: 35:996, Again was a solid lap but could of been faster, was P3 of the hard starters so I was happy.
Race: The race start was insane, lots of battles and some nudges but took no damage, had a nice 3 wide in T2 with De Wit/Lapchin with wheel bumps but nothing major, after this I had contact with Kalamees but luckily no damage still but on lap 3 or 4 I was following Yannick into T1 and went to the right to get in the mirrors of him but we made some contact and his wheel came off, personally there was lag and I hit his rear wheel and it detached, I can only apologize for it, here is a screen from my perspective - http://oi39.tinypic.com/72f4te.jpg but via server replay it just shows me hitting his rear wheel full on. I was suprised at how early he broke but it was way too late by then. If anything I should of received front wing damage rather than this unfortunate incident, however the rest of the race was good, keeping pace to Ivar/Jack which was nice but due to restrictions of driving WS champ I couldn't get above P6 and I got it luckily splitting Mallorqui and De Wit. This was hard as they were fighting very close.
Thanks to the team for this opportunity "
|"Q1 was very good setting my PB in my second run.|
Q2 was good aswel only 0.025 behind Martin and just infront of both Jack and Ivar.
Race start was good holding up the place until t6 when i got stuck on the kerb at the exit. Really stupid mistake wich cost me 5 positions in the first place. Ride after that i couldn't keep some soft guys behind. So i got stuck in some fights. In many of the overtaking attemps i got cut off ore pushed onto a kerb wich was really bad. Also got a tab from Peter Varga one time in the last corner.
We switched over to a 3 stop but it dident work out in the end.
It was a hard race with some unfortunate mistakes and incidents.
I wil take this 1 point with both hands. Up to the next one!"
|"Q1 - I didn't test allot Q1's so expected 13th for 2nd time in a row.|
R - Started well, and gained few positions. After 5th laps i was included in a battle where I had a luck and overtook all fighting drivers after they touched and lost some time. After that i was on 5th place. I was distracted from some pain in my teath and did a mistake and spun. Lost 4-5 seconds and 3 places. I was choiced to make 3 stops. First 2 stints were with hards the last second stints were with softs. Did another mistake with a half spin. Last laps i managed to catch Rob, but my tires gone, if I had one more lap maybe could take that point.
I'm very disappointed from this race, this was a track which I hate, but expected after a strong race pace what i had to win some good points like 6-7th place, but i failed. Cya in Monaco :)"
|"To been a fantastic career, the penalty is that we have not scored. I can say high and clear that we have taken another small step forward and hope that everything continues race after race. Congratulate Morand for their huge victory and entire Jasco team by his enormous strength of will. PSR Gooo! See you in Monaco."|
|"Bad race, the pace was slow and the car was too much damaged to do my best"|
|"Qualifying was where I expected.|
Race I made a mistake which cost me tine and mire time stuck behind cars. Damage as well after a second mistake. I might have finished higher without mistakes but not in the top 10 I dont think."
|"after a bad qual i had a great start. I moved up from 20 to 10 in a few laps! had some great overtake. sadly i had a little incident and my car got broke, i got terrible understeer, later the race when i burned the fuel, my car balance came back, and I could do some good laps. at the end I finished at 15th which is not bad from 20, but its far away from i want to be :) see u in monaco"|
|"After not participate in barehin and after little training I have taken the race to pick up pace. In classification could not leave by a pending sanction, and did not know actually as we were in race, yet I think that we have advanced in the controls of the car and I have enjoyed some struggles at the beginning of the race, then after the first stop has been distancing rivals and we have not been able to do much more.See you in monaco"|
|"Not so much to say...after a good first stint i decided to pit 2 laps early to gain some thents on drivers in front and behind me. Unfortunately my pitbox was in front of another driver who left the pit box when i was stopping in mine....the result was a crash, car damaged, engine stalled twice away from pitbox, 32sec stopped and race over. See u next....i hope also my lucky day."|

|"Q: was faster then expected but still at the back.|
R: Started steady but made a mistake and was last. Then overtook Marconi and later he hit me at the back and mature damage at the back. Car was not drivable anymore and so spun and stalled the engine."
|"Q1 : I missed 3rd sector 3 times in a row, loosing 2 tenths there at each attempt. I was lucky to be 0,015s ahead of P10/11.|
Q2 : Not a perfect lap, 2 tenths over my PB but in the end I was p4 just behind Morgan and I was quite happy.
Race : I managed to keep 4th place at the start. But then I was attacked by Martin, Patrick and Ivar. Nice battles lap 2/3/4 but at turn 1 I got hit heavily by Martin. Rear right wheel came off so I was done.
The pace is here this season but I never managed to finish a race normaly. Pace hasn't paid off yet.
See you next race !"
|"3/3 DNF. What can I say. I was being pushed around all the half of the 1st lap. Pushed on the grass in t1 and almost spinning, later in the lap crashed from behind, 2 corners later crashed when having a slide. This is so sad"|

|"Well, after 6 years there was again a Swiss driver in the WC grid. Sadly I stalled my engine because a noob mistake :( Pace didn't look bad. Hope that this year I will get another opportunity and do then at least one meter :D"|
