Thomas Couyotopoulo - Chief Operating Officer: "A frustrating final result here at Silverstone today, we were looking forward to a comfortable 2nd place finish. Strategy was good, but unfortunately 25min before the end of the race a technical issue forced us to retire. We have done everything we could from our side, the last pit stop was completed, and it was about racing to the finish line. We were in a solid second position, which we thought we would keep until the end. All three drivers did a good job. Paul did a great start gaining several positions and followed the strategy as planned. Matthieu did a good job as well despite being slightly hampered by traffic, he pushed hard to place the car in a top position. Then, when it was Norman's turn to take over the car, it was to finish the race. He had a good pace and it was very unfortunate this technical issue during the last stint kept us from finishing the race today."
Norman Nato: “We struggled in free practice and qualifying to find the right balance. They resurfaced the track and quite a few teams were testing before and it was quite difficult to find a decent balance. Today I am quite happy with what we have done, we were running in P2 before we had a brake failure. Generally, it was positive because it was good to react for the race even if we had a difficult time before. I think there is nothing we could do about today. It's a shame for the championship, but I prefer that we have a race where we can show that we can come back with right pace instead of being in P8 without any pace. That's motorsports and we will try to understand what happened, even though I think there was nothing we could have done about it. We will come back stronger in Spa.”
Paul Petit: “It's a big frustration after a good start with the car being much better than in free practice. My first stint was not bad as I was in 5th and my second stint was good as well and I tried to manage my tyres and to keep the car in a good position for Matthieu. The race was very good, my two team mates did a really good job, so did the entire team. It's difficult to accept the final result because for the championship it's making things harder. G-Drive are strong but, if we had scored the points for second today, our chances for the title would be open. Now it becomes difficult, but we will keep our heads up and we will fight for the win in Spa and to keep in second place. The entire team did a good job, which makes it so difficult to accept how the race ended for us.”
Matthieu Vaxiviére: “My first time with Racing Engineering was great and I had a good weekend. We worked well on the car during free practice where we struggled a bit with the set up and learning the track, as teams tested earlier the week. I had a good pace in the race, Paul had a good start as well and I think we did the right strategy. Norman was really quick towards the end of the race as well. For me this was close to a perfect race and we were just very unlucky with the brake issue at the end. But I am really happy to have worked with Racing Engineering. I hope the team has a good result in the championship and I could help with it.”
