Q:

Yann, you had been solid in qualifying the old day, you made the most of Nathanaël Berthon’s jumped originate after which it changed into a extraordinarily effectively-organized trot for you.

YE:

Yeah, precisely, all the pieces occurred at the originate. I saw he jumped the originate, but he unruffled did two or three laps and he had in actuality relevant tempo. It will had been relevant for me to apply that tempo. Nonetheless then he went to the box and I had my free arrangement to work on my tempo and saving my tyres to the halt, because it is miles awfully a protracted trot. So then I started to make a earn 22 situation to the fellow within the succor of me. The trot went in actuality effectively and I’m in actuality satisfied that all three had been on the podium, and a famiy podium with Yvan so let’s inform our weekend is effectively done.

Q:

This need to fetch you assured for the Nürburgring and it appears to be like love your car has relevant tempo on the straights, which is able to be obligatory there.

YE:

I don’t know if we’re sooner or slower on the straights than the others, it appears to be like fairly an such as the others. Nonetheless I love this tune, it’s a proper ballsy tune so I’m attempting forward to being there and to originate pushing.

Q:

Your uncle Yvan changed into in P2. What would perchance well need been the approach between you if he had caught you?

YE:

There’ll not be any approach, we’re free to trot each and every numerous and that’s the wy it need to be.

Q:

Yvan, whenever you happen to had been below stress and you had the probability to decide the P1 place from Yann, would you halt so?

YM:

Most likely. Nonetheless within the period in-between I will’t be below stress because I will’t apply his rhythm. He changed into sooner than me. That’s why I’m satisfied with this second earn 22 situation. For me it’s love a victory, you know. We did the identical in China final year the place we had been first and second and now we halt the reverse, so I’m very satisfied of that. It’s fairly implausible to allotment that within the identical family, I’m larger than double his age. I’ve taught him all the pieces I know since he changed into 17, so it’s very top. Ideally righteous timing.

Q:

What did you fetch out regarding the Goodyear tyres as we negate?

YM:

Plenty. These new tyres are very numerous to the tyres now we dangle got old for the final 10 years and we unruffled dangle a lot to work and fetch out about them. Nonetheless it is miles the identical for everyone. We struggled quite, I mediate everyone struggled. Presumably we struggled quite less on qualifying because we stumbled on a model, but now we dangle got unruffled no longer stumbled on a model within the trot… our tempo within the trot changed into no longer hasty ample. Nonetheless now we dangle got to work on that and hope that the BoP doesn’t inch worse than that.

Q:

How noteworthy distinction halt you imagine it would fetch when it’s cooler, inform at the Nürburgring?

YM:

This would perchance well be quite interesting, namely on the rear axle. As you presumably can stare, everyone changed into looking to warm up the tyres on the warm up lap and if at the Nürburgring it is miles frigid with the total long straights it would perchance well be sophisticated. So we’ll stare. We now desire to adapt and address it ourselves.

Q:

Santiago, it’s implausible to dangle you up on the podium to your first WTCR weekend. That need to be a beautiful relevant feeling.

SU:

Yeah, in spite of all the pieces it is miles. It changed into already after qualifying after I made it to Q3. You know, I would no longer be here if the folks that imagine in me had no longer place me within the automobile. It changed into a substantial alternative, but at the identical time it changed into love a substantial stress to be with team-mates who dangle received world titles and Yann, who’s gargantuan-hasty and has been within the sequence for a pair of years. So I needed to appropriate with them. We didn’t dangle proper pre-season checking out, we handiest did a pair of assessments. Nonetheless from the most predominant day I joined the team I truly dangle felt I’m at residence. It changed into easy to work with them, with the mechanics, the engineers. For me, I will not be extra satisfied than what I’m. I gorgeous joined the team two months within the past and we did a 1-2-3 and are leading the championship, so it’s capable for me.

Q:

They knew you had been going to be solid. After we spoke to Yvan on Thursday he said you had been the one to leer and that it’s essential well be very hasty, and you’ve got gotten proved him appropriate which is terribly relevant news.

SU:

It makes it easy must you dangle gotten a four-time world champion next to you and you’ve got gotten a search files from, and you leer the data and video, and he reduction you to to. That’s what we did within the pre-season. It’s gorgeous the most predominant trot. Other folks inform it’s a short season, but at the halt of the day it’s unruffled 18 races. We’ve obtained to be appropriate there within the total races, the competition is gargantuan-tricky. Your total vehicles are lovely noteworthy on the identical tempo. We are doubtlessly quite of bit better in qualifying but by the time we fetch to the trot we don’t dangle the simpler tempo. So we desire to work on this and now we dangle got a protracted championship forward. For the moment I’m gargantuan-satisfied.

Q:

How effectively halt you know the Nürburgring?

SU:

I’ve handiest been there once. There changed into quite of bit of rain the day I went there. Really the most predominant time I drove the Lynk & Co it changed into there. It’s no longer an effortless tune, it’s very interesting and clearly it’s going to be a interesting weekend for us, namely for me. Nonetheless it’s on the agenda so I in actuality want to total it, I in actuality want to adapt to the tune and snatch the tempo. I’m particular it would perchance well be OK.

YM:

Sorry, I would snatch to decide the alternative to allege effectively performed to Gilles Magnus because he deserved to be on the podium, but he had a technical allege. He changed into speedy here, his car changed into speedy. And I in actuality want to allege howdy to Andy Priaulx, we leave out you and effectively performed to Santi, on his first assembly with the team and first podium within the championship. Effectively performed.

Q:

Originate you even dangle a discover for the total folks that dangle struggled by the pandemic?

YM:

It’s a explicit year and we all know any individual who changed into in unfortunate health. It’s a extraordinarily special year and now we dangle got to halt cautious, to snatch faraway from each and every numerous and to snatch the masks. OK, there is quite a lot of dialogue on the masks, but I’m particular it reduces the probability if we effectively-organized our palms. And if we all halt the difficulty we can reach to the halt of this allege. Nonetheless now we dangle got to snatch the stress on that.

Q:

And the identical search files from to you, Santiago.

SU:

My sister, she turned a physician a year within the past, so I know what it is miles. She’s working tough and I truly dangle noteworthy admire for the total doctors who are working very tough in this moment. Congrats yet again to Cyan Racing Lynk & Co, they’ve performed an righteous job. I’m gargantuan-satisfied to be in WTCR, it’s something that I dreamed of for quite a lot of years and now I’ve made it now.

YE:

One extra allege regarding the coronavirus, we’re in actuality grateful to the organisers of the championship because it is miles difficult to organise all this as we negate, so I’m in actuality grateful to be a fragment of this trot weekend and I’m hoping it would continue so long as imaginable. I are also looking to present a discover to the #RaceToCare project which offers 1 euro for 1km for the total clinical stuff, in negate that’s a terribly fantastic project.

Q:

Gilles, we view you had been going to be on the podium. What occurred there?

GM:

Yeah, precisely, I believed the identical allege. I believed all the pieces changed into stable and that P2 changed into within the pocket. Nonetheless the trot is infrequently finished and it wasn’t the case. We had a gas pump allege, we had this allege already in Breeze 1, I lost some positions in Breeze 1 as a consequence of this. With the preparation time, there is no longer ample time to exchange the gas pump, so I changed into quite of terrified for Breeze 2. We place in noteworthy extra gas but it no doubt didn’t determine, so the final five laps I gorgeous didn’t dangle the tempo and I lost strength within the most predominant sector. I changed into lucky with the safety car because I wouldn’t dangle even finished the trot or would dangle finished out of the tip 10. So lucky and unlucky at the identical time.

Q:

Became that a effort for all in Comtoyou vehicles or gorgeous on yours?

GM:

It’s something we don’t stare most continuously, it’s something new on our car, no numerous car has had it. So it’s gorgeous inappropriate luck, it will happen to someone. No blame to Comtoyou because they did an righteous job this weekend in TCR Europe and WTCR.

Q:

That is your earn 22 situation circuit. You didn’t halt up on the podium, but how has your weekend been within the WTCR?

GM:

I mediate I need to be satisfied. Qualifying P3 and zero.04s of a second. We finished P4 but must dangle finished in P2. So quite of pissed off, but we confirmed our tempo, we confirmed what we’re price, so I’m satisfied.

Q:

And halt you dangle gotten a message to our followers and followers about gorgeous how interesting this pandemic has been?

GM:

I mediate it’s a interesting duration for everyone. I lost my grandmother to COVID-19, everyone has lost any individual. Nonetheless now we dangle got to halt solid together.
