Alan Queille - Technical Director: "A day to forget for Ander. We had a very difficult qualifying, ending P19 and his race was not good either as he had to stop after one lap due to an issue. He was sent back on track but after some laps done, we decided not to continue. Romain had a very good start, overtaking 5 cars in the opening lap, he was having the same pace as the 2 cars in front of him for the first part of the race but our pace dropped off too much during the last part of the race to fight for better positions, and thanks to a very good defensive drive. As for Myatt, after the FP and the qualifying, we hoped for a better result than P9 in Superpole, unfortunately, we didn't manage to get all the tyre performance. In the race, he was running in P5 when he was hit at a SC restart and had to fight from the back of the field. He managed to catch up some cars to finish in P12. Due to traffic, Eric didn't manage to complete the laps in qualifying which should have allowed him to fight for the Superpole position. He was therefore starting from P18 for today’s race, he managed to gain some positions with a good move through T1 and T2. He was running P13 during the first laps but the pace didn't allow us to stay in the fight for the top ten. With a mechanical issue, we had to retire from the race with 6 laps to go. We will have to work overnight to improve our performance significantly."
Ander Vilariño: “.It has been a very disappointing day. We lacked pace in qualifying and then, in the race, I pitted because I thought that I had a puncture. Back to the track I was running alone and didn't have pace. I hope things go better tomorrow.”
Romain Iannetta: "I had a good start and was taking advantage of the space on the outside of corner 1 and 2. The car was quick during the first part of the race. Then the tyre degradation kicked in and the performance dropped off a bit. I was able to keep my position then gained one from Hezemans but lost it again shortly after to finish the race in 6th position. We will work on the set-up for tomorrow now and I hope for more points in tomorrow’s race.”
Myatt Snider: "I had a good start and got to P5 avoiding other people’s messes, but then someone decided to turn me into a mess, tried to go three-wide and spun me. So, we just spent the rest of the race trying to recover. It’s a shame as we have great Ford Mustangs and someone else goes and ruins it. We will try to run strong again tomorrow."
Eric Clement: "The first part of the race was OK; I was running in 14th with a lot of laps still to go. But all of a sudden, I had a problem with the steering, which made it dangerous to continue. It’s a pity, but I preferred to stop."
