Q:

Néstor, what a large originate for you. Mumble us even though it.

NG:

Initially I’d determine to congratulate Attila for his first podium. Successfully done, mate. Additionally, congratulations Thed, all my personnel who did a shining job. We knew the originate used to be the main of the glide because he at Zolder it is de facto no longer easy to overtake, so we practised within the pre-season. I used to be confident every time I practised the originate all the contrivance in which through the weekend and I knew that after the originate I needed to set up faraway from errors. I made a gap, then with out note I picked up some oil within the last corner. I used to be very huge, Thed used to be cutting the variation, he used to be there, but anyway I mediate we had the tempo to originate the gap. We had been very stable and I mediate we did the total lot neatly this weekend. We scored aspects and a victory for Honda, so I am so cosy. Additionally let me congratulate and dedicate this victory to Oliver who had a household scenario the outdated day and needed to head dwelling, so I are looking to dedicate this to him and all his household.

Q:

You doubtlessly did a large job of avoiding errors and you regarded now to no longer hang any complications. Alternatively, we did hear from two of your personnel-mates Esteban Guerrieri and Tiago Monteiro that they had water temperature complications resulting in blow u.s.and an quit to their glide. Did it’s likely you’ll presumably perchance presumably presumably also simply hang got any complications and the contrivance in which attentive to the scenario had been you within the car?

NG:

No one urged me, thank God, because I used to be so mad about avoiding errors and to head with out hassle, riding and maintaining the tempo. But within the event you are within the entrance it’s likely you’ll presumably perchance presumably presumably also simply hang got recent air so perchance here is the reason I didn’t hang any water or oil temperature [problems]. Additionally, here at Zolder now we hang a huge hit within the chicane if you soar it so perchance the radiator would be damaged, so we don’t know, now we must take a look at.

Q:

The Nürburgring is the following glide and you’ll need to feel moderately confident. What regarding the Goodyear tyres?

NG:

With out a doubt, the tyres had a in actuality honest tempo, we didn’t hang any complications. We practised lengthy runs within the pre-season and also here in Zolder. It’s precious that now the temperature is chillier, so any extra now we hang very low temperatures and this helps the tyres a lot, so I don’t ask any scenario on the Nürburgring. But riding on the Nordschleife is a in actuality altering track so I’m awaiting going there. Final year used to be adore knife combating: a small bit on the limit and over! So this year we’d adore a gracious one but a small bit bit less, I’ll presumably perchance perchance yell! We now must keep in mind the fellows within the Lynk & Cos had been in actuality stable on this track and on the Nürburgring now we must originate an enchancment if we are looking to battle for the pole.

Q:

Thed, what a originate that used to be for you!

TB:

Dawdle, it felt in actuality honest. I know that I am regularly in actuality reactive and immediate within the originate and the car felt very honest. We now hang also been practising begins, so each person knows we are in a position to carry out it. And it used to be the main to discover previous the Alfa of Vernay and Bebo, I hang to congratulate him for a shining originate and from that he controlled the glide. The finest thrilling moment used to be when he slid on the oil, but otherwise he did a shining job with no errors and actual kept pushing. I purchased a epic about your personnel-mates, so that they talked about actual strive to push and take a look at what happens with Bebo’s car. I used to be hoping all the time that he would discover into anguish. That’s egocentric, alternatively it’s continuously adore this! But I’m in actuality cosy to be here, superbly cosy to be on the podium for Lynk & Co and our Cyan personnel. It’s very wonderful to be here. Congratulations Attila for your first podium. He tried to psyche me out a small bit bit flashing his lights alternatively it has by no formula labored on us dilapidated guys! That it’s likely you’ll even retain working!

Q:

At one point we heard you on the radio regarding ‘no oil’. Have been you regarding within the car or on the track?

TB:

First I purchased the records that there used to be plenty of oil on the track, so I took it very easy and I misplaced some condominium to Néstor, and then I reported there’s rarely a oil on the track. My engineer talked about it must be one thing else that bought reported so I started to strive to protect up a small bit bit. Then I had no reviews of oil after we went into the last corner and then there used to be oil! So it used to be a small bit bit busy on that time.

Q:

We heard Santiago and Yann had been scuffling with vibrations within the car, but you didn’t hang that?

TB:

No, but I mediate Bebo used to be on to one thing because if you hit the sizable kerbs moderately great you doubtlessly will discover vibrations, but I didn’t discover any data from the personnel and my car used to be OK.

Q:

So are you feeling obvious for the Nürburgring?

TB:

Yeah, for sure. I adore to pressure on the Nürburgring, I feel very obvious, I’ve been there persistently and it’s plenty of fun. It’s very no longer easy but I in actuality gape forward to head there.

Q:

Attila, congratulations for your first podium in WTCR.

AT:

Thanks, last year I had an different to seize a glide in Vila Right, but unfortunately I had snide luck there. But to originate the season adore this with an ALL-INKL one-three I mediate is terribly honest, especially from my aspect. I used to be no longer awaiting to originate the season’s first glide on the podium. Thed talked about I tried to flash him a small bit bit usually to originate a mistake, we talked about that. But they’re extra experienced than me! It used to be a in actuality honest battle, usually I purchased shut, but no longer adequate. We had some brake efficiency complications, for sure after I used to be nearer I used to be shedding brake efficiency so I needed to then wait on off a small bit bit.

Q:

How had been the tyres for you?

AT:

I used to be looking to protect up the tyres from the beginning, but I had plenty of understeer. For obvious we are in a position to change the car for Bound 2 because this balance I’m no longer 100% cosy with. But the car felt supreme, all honest, except for for the small complications.

Q:

Quit you’re taking into consideration that with the climate doubtlessly getting hotter this afternoon they’ll react to that?

AT:

Yeah, now we must pick the total lot together to work out a honest direction with the car and gape on the temperatures.

Q:

You had been shut to a podium on the Nürburgring last year, resulting in a P4. How carry out you noticed regarding the Honda is going to fare there for you?

AT:

I’m in actuality awaiting riding the Nürburgring, last year used to be the necessary time for me. I in actuality loved it and sooner than it used to be a dream to glide on it in true lifestyles. I’m in actuality obvious, we had a take a look at there within the summer. We now must be very cautious also with the Audi and the Lynk & Co because they’re very immediate on the short circuits with greater speeds. So on the Nordschleife it must be an even bigger difference, but we will receive a contrivance to push as great as we are in a position to to discover the finest out of the car.

Q:

Tommy, it is a satisfaction to peek you sitting there with a trophy. You will must be moderately happy with that.

TC:

It feels honest. I’m in a position to look at we are in competition with the car and the personnel. The last three or four laps I used to be trying a bit to tease Tassi a small bit bit. I saw that each person used to be saving the brakes first and main because it is continuously moderately great on the brakes here and no one knew what used to be going to happen after seven or eight laps. Finally we saw that this used to be the case, so I used to be asking the personnel how lengthy the glide would last. He talked about actual three or four laps, so I talked about OK, I strive to push now. I used to be teasing two times here within the chicane. If you happen to are on the inner, you are then on the exterior for the following one and I’ll presumably perchance perchance by no formula hang made it. It would possibly perchance maybe presumably perchance perchance had been a form of plain the total lot or nothing moves. I’m cosy with P4, a honest originate to the season, that’s for obvious.

Q:

How conscious had been you of the complications the Hondas and the Lynk&Cos had been having all the contrivance in which through the glide?

TC:

I used to be attentive to the total lot because after I used to be riding over the hill I saw in my rear-take a look at advise sizable smoke and I can even take a look at it used to be Esteban. Then the personnel used to be telling me watch out, it must be slippery. Then I saw Tiago on the head of the straight and we nearly outbraked ourselves on the chicane because we made a large mistake. They urged us but still you strive to protect the fellows in entrance. I pushed it a small bit bit, but I can even take a look at Tassi used to be taking a hang a look at me all the time because on the straights I used to be looking to cross to the aspect to protect the chilly air for the brakes and he used to be transferring in my direction on motive to tease me obviously, now to no longer discover the chilly air. Till now technically space-up wise and with the personnel the total lot feels in actuality stable.

Q:

Gilles, what a pleasure to hang you with us. What a large originate for you.

GM:

I am cosy to hang performed the glide and to hang pushed a stable glide because there’s still Bound 2 and there’s no longer plenty of preparation between the 2. So I didn’t pick any dangers. I had a small bit gasoline pump scenario on the head and misplaced a issue due to this of that, but overall I mediate I’ll presumably perchance perchance be cosy about my debut. Now let’s take a look at in Bound 2. We now hang a honest beginning issue, so let’s push.

Q:

What did you compare the model the drivers drove spherical you at this diploma?

GM:

I mediate each person used to be moderately actual because all of us hang in tips Bound 2, so the aggression used to be moderately OK, I expected it to be worse. But still I used to be too actual before the total lot and misplaced about a positions. I can even had been a small bit extra aggressive and can even simply still be next time.
