Drivers' comments

I was surprised at my start position but also worried about being in the thick of it at T1. I had nowhere to go, rear ended piero & got stuck on a bollard :doh: The car was bent so it took a number of laps to get to grips with the new car. Made progress & threw it away, multiple times. Tried hard to stay on the lead lap but had my most fun chasing Erik after he lapped me :thumbup: & set 4th fastest lap in the process :whistle:

Grats podium & finishers. Shame for those caught in the T1 melee. Thanks admins, you're stars :clap:

Enjoy the coming races, I'm sad to miss some classics. I will see you at Road Atlanta, I'm off for sunshine & rocks down under :mrgreen:
