|"Great win but quite sad race for the team. We could have taken double definitely without Bruno`s problems. I took pole, started well but in the first stint i lacked some speed and I was holding Bruno. It got better later and after Roy slowed down i had no problems at all. Just finishing race. Thanks to the team for all and lets hope next time we can have both car at the finish."|
|"My race overall was pretty good, only that i wasn't happy with my pace.. was about .5 slower than in testing. Drove consistant, was abit afraid to push in first laps but then i saw everybody is going faster than me and catching me started to push more. Pit stops were worst in my career 1st time i overshot the box and stall engine.. cost me 10 seconds to go back then i had to catch everybody other 2 pit stops just stalled engine which cost about 2 seconds... well anyway im happy with my results hope i can do one more step better next race :) cya at melb"|
|"What a race! My dad was watching the race and talking to me from the team radio and was so exciting to hear him joy and give me confidence to try finish on the podium! And I made it, with a bad start, even worse first stint and been on the chrage for the whole race after my first stop. I had same pace of the winner Ondrej, maybe i was even a bit faster when I had nobody in front of me. With a good qualify and start I could have fought for the win. Car was better than expected. But at the end is good the podium. I was lucky that Bruno and Roy retired, but I really was unlucky in the qualifying and start of the race.|
At the end it was a good race and I am way more confident than I was at this time last year."
|"Well, my qualifying was not as good as expected. So, I decided to do a 2stop strategy although I knew that my rear tires would not be good in the last few laps of a stint. Start was ok, but I had some lags in first corner. Then I tried to save my tires and my strategy worked. I could gain few postions and also caused by some DNFs, I was in second postion after my second stop. But I could not get a podium, because in the last laps my rear tires were really bad and I had less top speed on the straights too.|
Overall a nice race with my teammate finished in the points too.
I would also like to thank our sponsors Baker Billiards, OSIRIS Shoes, United Sales Distributors and ATMOSPHERE for making this possible with their outstanding funding of our program."
|""I really had a great race. At the start I was being really carefull, because i had a lot of lag, and didnt want to crash, or crash into someone. So i maintained 7th position. Carefully driving behind David. I went passed him on the straight, as he seemed to have some problems, probably with lag also. Patrick passed me into T1, he came from really far, but I saw him, and backed off naturally, because i didnt wanna crash. Few laps later I got passed him again, and started to pull away, and going towards danny. I knew we were on the same strategy, both stopped in 15th lap. After the pitstop, the gap was less than a second. At one moment i came to close to him, and needed to go off track to avoid hitting him, Darius passed me at that point. I started to gain on Danny again, and passed him eventually. After second pitstop, I got stuck for a few laps behind Joakim, i knew he was on a 2 stop, so he was slower than in laptime, I also passed him with a good fight. Before my last pitstop, David passed me after I made a mistake, and after that I decided to safe my brakes, and just bring the car home. I did bad laptimes last stint, because of it. Maybe in the end not such a good idea, because Spengler was really slow in the end, if i pushed more in my last stint, maybe I couldve had him. But I chose to bring my car home instead of that. I'm really happy with this result in my debut race. And thanks to Roald and GS owners, Pedro and Dethan for giving me this oppertunity to make my debut here at Bahrein. Finally, congratulations to Ondrej, Darius and David for their podium, great drive!!""|
|"Did a bad qual as expected, but I did even a worse start where I lost 3-5 places even before crossing start/finish line, and also got some problems later on lap1, since someone had spinned...|
luckly I was on a 2 stopper.
I had one scary moment in my race, in my last stint I was right behind Danny, he was faster, but with the sleepstream I could keep up, so tried to pass, but at one turn I had to turn out of the track to awoy hitting his rear, not sure if he braked late or I simply missed my brakingpoint. luckly I just went wide and no incident between ous.
anyway happy to get 7th and my first points for TMo :D "
|"This was a much better race for me than the previous one. I went into it much more prepared because I got the call to drive earlier. The first laps was a bit of a mess around me but I managed to stay out of trouble but lost a few positions, when everything fell into line I could begin to overtake despite being really heavy on my 2 stopper. The car was good an consistant thanks to our good in team setup developing and I drove an almost error free race to 6th. For the incident with Danny all I can say that is I was not the one who locked tyres more. We both braked too late but Danny even more than me and he came back into the line after running really wide. Race incident. Thanks to our sponsors, Naturalpoint, HiMa motorrad zubehör, to JR for the fantastic strategy and the team for good work. To J for putting up with me racing late at night."|
|"A disappointing race for me that had good potential, after I had a decent qualifying and decent start. I was running in 3rd after the first pitstops with a few seconds lead over Darius, when I ran into Peter Kazza who held me up and allowed the others behind to catch up to me, and once they got close they were able to slip stream past me. I was running a bit heavy that stint so I was not too worried as I thought I could get them later on, but it proved costly as I emerged from the second stops just behind Greco, and Joakim who were fighting for position. I overtook Joakim on the outside of T1 but he braked too late and slid into the side of me spinning me out and my race was pretty much ruined then. I got going again and was going to finish 7th but both my front brakes let go 5 laps from the end which ended my chance for points. Pretty upsetting race as I had decent pace today and with a short 12 lap final stint I could have fought for the podium if I had not be taken out and if my car had held together."|
|"Somewhat mixed feelings at the moment. My race was influenced by a wounded pedal foot toe (strain injury from too much practise) and Schmalenbach's abrupt change of line in the middle of braking into turn 3, which cost me front wing and a damaged car for rest of the race, but this is what happens when you start in the midfield. I had a funny moment when I overtook Kuncman, who had lapped me earlier, but apart from that my race was boring. Trinka showed everything was in podium shape for us, congrats for him, so I already wait for the next race."|
|"Another disaster....again about 0.8sec over my pb in qual and about 1.1sec over my race pace.....lol. Another hit from behind and i lost 3 positions...."|
|"well, it will be dificult to me to speak about this race but i will try. Today i was running in my girlfriend house because of my connection problems but the end will be the same, was i had a connection lost 2 laps to the end of the race, canīt believe. In Qualify i didnīt have too much hope because i focus my attention on race setup, i could fight for 14 or 15 place but that was ok.|
In race i had terrible probs with pc my game goes really slow and i was running 2 or more seconds slower than my pace. i had a good start and follow Fabrizio, and he pass some cars crashed and going into the gravel, we gain a lot of positions there. in the 1 or 2 lap i had a touch with Sergio when he was trying to pass me and my front suspension got damage. Then in the next laps i made a mistake and lost some positions. After that i run solo running with a really poor pace but i couldnīt do better because of the computer. Then 2 laps to the end of the race when i was 11 position i i got a connection lost. So frustating....i have no words. Anyway iīm happy because this is a historical day for GhostSpeed Team has we took the first points in the FSR Championship, and we need to thanks Stephane Rouault by his excelent performance and Roaldo Racing for letting him race for us. Thanks Guys. Lets hope the problems in connection and computers dies here
|"Frustrating weekend for me. I know I would lose the Qual, because I tested only race trim this week. I took a bit less fuel for the first stint, that I can overtake until Iīm behind Bruno, that was my target. So I did. Then I saw smoke in T1 and I knew it was Bruno. I thought... "If you brake too late there, ok, you come back on track and continue. He must have a brake failure due to the slipstream". Slipstream was something I didnīt test. Then Ondrej made slower for unknown reason and I thought he want me to overhead my brakes too. I checked the temps and indeed they reached 1000° in slipstream even with duct 6. So I gove up the slipstream and dropped off 1-2 sec laps just to cruise it at home. 8 points are better than 0 I thought. But then I had a freeze again. My screen went black, sound holding. A few seconds later the sound was back, but the screen was still black. I heard the car crashing, but I could only reset the PC to get the screen back. I know Dominik Binz had similar problems last year. I use already safe BIOS settings, cleaned PC, opened the case to avoid any little overheat problem. I donīt know what cause this problem and Iīm sure this will happen again. My season is already over here, I cannot fix that problem. Grats to guys on podium and also to Joakim for a superb job in testings and in race. |
|"My ISP cut my internet at home, so I took all my hardware at my job (40x2 km) to be able to race. As always, I never give up!|
My pace was good, I was really confident. But when I went on track, I had a 'connexion lost' problem. Start from last position...
At least I avoided all problems at the start, and when front was free, I tryed to push the car. Why 'try' only? Because I quickly realised that my problems weren't over: my MOMO pedals had that known gas problem. I was simply lapping 1s slower than normally!!!
Izotov was able to overtake me, but position gained again in pits.
Suddenly in lap 45 i felt something was wrong, and indeed my brakes started to fade...Two turns later I had to stop the car in a safe place.
I have mixed feelings for this race. Of course I'm really disappointed of the result, I'm not used to DNF...but the pace was good!
I'm gonna take a week off in Egypt, and I'll be back in Australia in 3 weeks."
|"i think i had great battles again............|
stephane made a good move over me in turn 1
i was going for points and then my brakes failed
stupid mistake but i was very slow all weekend to far off pace
i had to set an agressive approuch for the race
but looking forward to melbourne"
|"Not a bad qualy for me after all. I manage to do a decent lap and that was enough to be in the top 10. About the race, I try to do a safe start but going to the third curve when I was on p8, a saw Eric-Saxen coming very fast and then he hit me on the back of the car and then all went bad, i was on p17 with problems in my suspension. I try to push hard but wasnīt able to be on my usual lap times.|
Finally when trying to enter the pits in p11 I have some lag and I stalled the engine. Donīt know why I canīt start the engine.
I think that im going step by step, im not happy with the result but i think that the team is improving and hope to continue like this in Australia."
|"Very unfortunate race for me today, I had a very good car for the race. The qualify didn't go as I expected, as I had some unexpected grip loss, but managed to take 2nd. The race was going according to plan, being able to pass Ondrej on the pits, but exactly the moment I decided to push, my pedals had some problems and I had no chance to avoid the wall at T1. I am really sad for this as I am sure I could win today. Fortunately Roy also retired, so it's not so bad. Congrats to my team mate Ondrej for his win and pole. See you at Melbourne."|
|"Bad race, really unrealistic and boring physics, decided to retire after an acceleration spin, obviously no way to control it by lifting up, because the worst physics I ever droove in my life wouldn't permit it... "|
|"A disaster, only today i discover i must replace Paolo and Dominik and my steering FF don't work, luckily a friend of mine give me his power supply so i was able to race but totally without practice and these are the results, i hope the next race will be really better."|

|"Well, another race finished for me already in lap 1. Second time in a row I get crashed out by some impatient guy. Really sad, especially I had a very good race pace and think I could have finished on the podium."|
