THOUGHTS FROM LUNDGAARD, DELÉTRAZ AND VIPS
FIA System 2: Howdy and welcome to the click conference with the head three finishers in on the present time’s FIA System 2 Budge Flee right here at Mugello. We are joined by scramble winner Christian Lundgaard for ART Big Prix, in 2nd space is Louis Delétraz for Charouz Racing System, and third is Jüri Vips for DAMS. Christian, a dominant victory. Does that make up rather bit for what took space the day before right this moment?
Christian Lundgaard: I maintain it exhibits the travel that we had this weekend. The day prior to this should always peaceable were a victory. In case you discontinue high/choice, or in case you discontinue choice/high, you predict a Security Automobile at either the starting up save or the head… and it came in the head. That benefited the high/choice drivers. I’m no longer too upset in regards to the head end result the day before right this moment, because I peaceable explain that without the Security Automobile we would get performed the job. Clearly, it showed that we had a automobile that beautiful worthy as good of successful on the present time and we did that. I suggested the team that it’s either 17 parts or nothing, and we received 17 parts. I’m very contented with the head end result on the present time.
FIA System 2: The paunchy haul. You started third and made a large start as a lot as steal the lead. Then your travel changed into amazing. You won by over 14 seconds. Are you greatly surprised to be up to now sure of the relaxation of the field?
Christian: At some level, I changed into like, “now I get to address the tyres.” Every time on the straight, my engineer would uncover me the gap to P2, and it merely saved rising. At that level, I changed into merely cruising around attempting to nurse the tyres till the head. These Pirelli tyres appear to handiest work in case you save ample vitality into them, so on the head when I started pushing a ways more, I merely did not get more grip. I maintain it’s the equal for all people. The travel on the present time changed into enormous. The automobile changed into enormous, and the team did a large job the total weekend so I will be succesful of not thank them ample.
FIA System 2: Congratulations on the present time. Louis, a terribly good circulation across the exterior of Artem Markelov for 2nd space early in that scramble, after which having to discontinue some defending towards the head of it as properly. How changed into that scramble from your level of view?
Louis Delétraz: It changed into a terribly appropriate scramble. Starting up sixth, I had a really appropriate start up and passed three vehicles I maintain, to head straight into third. I knew Artem is extraordinarily skilled, but assuredly the travel is no longer mega, so I had to head moderately early in space of leisurely to overtake him. I observed the chance across the exterior and I went. It changed into ideally marvelous-wanting from him as properly. He gave me home, so as that changed into good. That is the scramble. Within the head I struggled with the rear tyres, but I merely made it.
FIA System 2: The day prior to this changed into your first Characteristic Flee podium of the season, but to back it up with a 2nd podium on the present time, does that exceed your expectations for this weekend?
Louis: I form no longer explain it exceeds my expectations, because I come and, as I stated the day before right this moment, I in fact desire to preserve. That is the most convenient thing I’m missing in this Championship. I have been looking ahead to it for a really very prolonged time. I maintain we had the travel for it. In Quali we already had it. It did not trip our contrivance, but that happens. Or no longer it’s racing. Two podiums and quite a lot of parts, if no longer the most parts of every person this weekend, so I will be succesful of’t be more joyful than that.
FIA System 2: Neatly performed on the present time. Jüri, your first podium in System 2, and in handiest your sixth scramble. You needs to be elated along with your work on the present time?
Jüri Vips: Yeah, I’m moderately joyful, but I would possibly perchance well presumably dispute it’s rather bit blended feelings. Clearly, I’m very jubilant for the team to ranking a podium and ranking some decent parts this weekend, but in the head I made a mistake in Qualifying, and in the races we did not capitalise on the opportunities that we had. I ignored out on a podium the day before right this moment, and we additionally had a hydraulic snarl in the gearbox which lost us moderately quite a lot of time. We had a uninteresting pit terminate too, so as that can well presumably were a podium there. As of late, the start up changed into ideal glum. I bet it’s merely rather little bit of inexperience from my aspect on the present time, with the start up. Light, there is some very appropriate positives to steal, and some very appropriate momentum into Sochi. As of late, the travel changed into moderately appropriate. I pushed rather bit too laborious to ranking as a lot as Louis, and presumably rather bit too early. Within the head, I merely ran out of tyres. There were four or 5 times in the outdated few laps that I nearly spun. I’m merely grateful that I done in the head. I in fact gave it all the pieces to ranking better from the injurious start up on the present time.
FIA System 2: I changed into going to display veil the fight with Louis. You potentially did ranking shut and changed into following him for some time, but changed into it on your suggestions that you were in a podium space already and also you did not desire to throw that away?
Jüri: No, no longer in fact. I merely glance a automobile in front and I are attempting to pass it. Whatever the snarl is. I gave it all the pieces, but I maintain in this Championship, with these tyres… What did not support me, with being inexperienced, I started pushing rather bit too early and being rather bit too alive to to appear at out and shut the gap to Louis after (Artem) Markelov hit me in the start up. I had maybe three seconds to him. I merely started pushing too early and I ran out of tyres in the head.
FIA System 2: Congratulations. Christian, merely returning to you. As you mentioned earlier, the quickest lap parts in addition as properly on the present time, and that locations you as a lot as third in the Drivers’ Championship. Ticket you’re feeling you would possibly perchance well presumably well properly be building a minute of momentum now after the final couple of weekends?
Christian: The Championship is one thing, but scoring parts every scramble is one more. Monza changed into an accurate weekend for me. Elegant worthy the equal results as Louis’ this weekend. Or no longer it’s scoring parts. The Championship peaceable has a qualified distance to head, with three scramble weekends. Mick (Schumacher) appears to be like to be moderately solid in consistency, merely scoring parts every scramble. We desire those podiums, ideal worthy to any extent extra till the head, but for me in the intervening time it’s peaceable a prolonged attain. We desire to focal level on being consistent, and that’s the reason the thing we have to discontinue now.
