Ines Koschutnig - Chief Executive Officer: "We struggled a bit to find the fastest set up at the beginning of the weekend, but the two podium finishes of Hugo De Sadeleer in Elite 2 proved that we were continuously improving and had a really fast car on track in the Sunday races. It’s a shame that Myatt’s Sunday race was spoilt by another car hitting him when he was fighting for a top 4 finish. In today’s Elite 1 race, Romain was able to show how fast and stable our car was when he finished in P4. Ander was supposed to finish at least right behind him, being stuck to the rear bumper of his teammate’s car during the entire race. However, at the restart a decision from race control regarding the starting order the driver and team are not able to understand destroyed Ander’s race, who was caught up in traffic and dropped back. This is especially bitter as already his qualifying was seriously affected by a timing mistake outside the team’s and driver’s control."
Ander Vilariño: "I am devastated on how the weekend has gone. We were supposed to be in Superpole, but a timing mistake disallowed this. Today’s race was OK, we passed a lot of cars and while I was in P5, there was a caution period and the safety car deployed. I was sent further back than I was actually in the race order the lap before. At the restart I was suffering from a racing incident that happened at a place I was not supposed to be at this moment. I was sent to the back of the field and my race was over there. It’s a real shame when you have a car to fight for a top position and something like this destroys your race."
Romain Iannetta: "We started 13th and the car was quick, especially from the middle of the race on. I was fighting for positions all race long, but it’s not an easy track for overtaking. I was in an intense battle for a podium finish during the last laps, but just couldn’t find the gap to pass for third. Overall it was a good race. ."
Myatt Snider: "The Racing Engineering guys really busted their tails last night and they brought a great race car for me this morning for the second round at Hockenheim. Unfortunately, we have nothing to show for it. I had passed up to 6th on a re-start in one lap, however, it got called back for reasons unknown. And then the next re-start afterwards, I got hit wheel to wheel by another driver who didn’t give enough room, and it put me back to 12th with very few laps to go. It’s a pity that we had such a fast Ford Performance Racing Engineering Mustang and were not able to show it."
Hugo De Sadeleer: "Second podium finish this weekend is not bad at all. The car was even better than yesterday, and in the closing stages of the race we were clearly quickest and fighting for the win. Unfortunately, some yellow flags came out and prevented us from overtaking. Overall, I had a very exciting first encounter with the NWES and, again, thank Racing Engineering for this great car and experience in this championship."
