Santi, you stated you had been assured coming into this weekend and that mental perspective has plenty to discontinue with why you are sitting in that heart seat. Are you able to talk us via your dawdle?
To begin with, I in fact beget to sigh that Cyan gave me an immense automotive and that’s why I’m P1 for the time being, so thank you to Cyan for their tough work. Then it’s a private factor that at the same time as you happen to are competing on the form of excessive level of drivers and groups within the championship that that you just would be capable of furthermore’t discontinue mistakes, you must be 100% every weekend. So when I did a mistake in Aragon that rate me different aspects within the championship and set me out of Q2, within the summertime break I ideal labored. I labored for myself, I did a pair of things and I saved believing in myself. I stated to you to delivery with of the weekend that I felt I could well presumably perhaps furthermore discontinue effectively, I fancy the music and the entirety started in qualifying which set me on the front row. In dawdle one I ship the automotive dwelling in correct aspects in P7. I was a little bit of bit lucky that Grab didn’t delivery up dawdle two, I started once in a whereas on pole. I had a correct delivery up and we know at this music at the same time as you happen to are leading the pack it’s miles remarkable more easy than at the same time as you happen to are within the support of since you lose different downforce. What can I sigh? I’m huge-utterly gay.
I know the season is prolonged, on the opposite hand it wants to be correct to be carrying the yellow hat for Goodyear #FollowTheLeader, even at the same time as you happen to discontinue portion the aspects lead with your group-mate Yann Ehrlacher.
It’s correct to portion the lead with Yann. We’re group-mates, we push every other to the limit and we are also leading the groups’ championship, which honestly is what we care about. It is the top likely factor to take hang of for Cyan, we are Cyan drivers. We apply principles and we’ll discontinue our easiest. Surely for the time being I am leading the championship but we now beget to address the group’s championship in which we are in a correct get of residing. Thed is coming support very effectively, he is doing a terribly correct job in Aragon and here, so I’m huge-utterly gay for him. We’ve handiest carried out four dawdle weekends, there are easy one other four dawdle weekends, so we now beget to withhold the coast, defend what we now beget factual now. Nevertheless we’ve viewed Audi is de facto quick, Honda even with 60kgs they’ll easy be on the podium, in sigh that’s reasonably spectacular. The handiest automotive we didn’t secret agent as very quick this weekend used to be Hyundai, however the discipline is terribly tight, it’s tough to get a gap within the dawdle, in qualifying, even within the championship. So I think the fellow who manages to be a little bit of bit lucky and discontinue within the aspects at every dawdle goes to advance on the stay of the championship with probabilities to take hang of. So I think if we defend coming into into this vogue, this is also gorgeous. So I’m utterly gay to be leading and yeah, it’s good ample that Yann is sharing the lead with me.
Bebo, an sudden get of residing for you up on the podium with Honda’s compensation weight. What are your tips?
Nicely, first of all congratulations to Santi for the victory. He did a superior job. Also to Vervisch, also he used to be pushing fancy hell via the dawdle, so I was sweating plenty throughout the dawdle. To be ideal, we had a in fact correct delivery up, this used to be the principle factor of the dawdle. I even started a little bit of bit greater than Santi, but I obvious to withhold within the support of him. I circulation a little bit of the line below braking, but ideal following Santi, I didn’t are looking to overtake him because I knew from the exterior it used to be never working since you get different wheelspin on the exit so I take hang of to conserve P2. Unfortunately there used to be this touch with Norbi, I’m in fact sorry for him. Nevertheless you know at the same time as you happen to are braking you are in reality, in fact, in fact on the limit. So sadly for him it used to be the stay of the dawdle. Nevertheless then as I stated we had been gorgeous-tuning the automotive plenty via the weekend because we knew this 60kg is never straightforward to manage. In one lap that that you just would be capable of furthermore discontinue it since you are in unique air, you don’t beget a automotive in front, so when I started the dawdle I stated OK I in fact beget to leave a gap with Santi because I need the unique air to produce and this used to be the realization for the length of your total dawdle because if I closed the gap I don’t know if I couldn’t because he used to be in fact quick. Nevertheless then I had more tyre degradation against the stay so I take hang of to withhold P2. It used to be a correct result for the group and with a little bit of luck at Most we are capable of be more aggressive, perhaps shedding some kilos. Nevertheless the championship is so aggressive, that that you just would be capable of furthermore’t discontinue mistakes, you must be in fact targeted and this weekend used to be top likely for me as effectively.
Frédéric, after we spoke earlier you stated you relish the Hungaroring but that one thing didn’t feel factual. How does it feel now?
In Flee 1 I felt fancy that all but again! Flee 2 for us obviously used to be a mega result. Also for them, congrats to Urrutia and Girolami for a huge job. Love they stated as effectively, with 60kg that’s rather spectacular. It’s a in fact tight championship and for us for certain to delivery up P9 I chose the factual facet on the first nook which helped me plenty, I was lucky to not be bearing in mind concerning the accidents and that made us circulation up I tried to withhold up them, I pushed all I could well presumably perhaps furthermore and I honestly had greater coast than in Flee 1, so this used to be obvious. Nevertheless to overtake used to be very advanced without touching or pushing any individual out. So I’m very, very utterly ecstatic with P3 and I in fact beget to thank my group Comtoyou and Audi for this automotive, and I’d also take hang of to congratulate Gilles Magnus for the 2d victory of the group, of the automotive [in Race 1]. He did a mega job, so with a little bit of luck we can continue fancy this.
What had been your tips on the ask over the jumped delivery as a lot as delivery with?
I ideal had a in fact correct delivery up. The lights went out and I went. So for me it’s OK. At T1 I made primarily the most positions because all people used to be on the internal and I was braking unhurried and on the exterior, so this used to be the principle.
*Following Flee 2, a five-2d penalty used to be issued to Girolami, shedding him from 2d to fifth.
