Omar Leal (Durango) second in Valencia: "The start was a little bit confused. After the safety car I attacked Onidi, who blocked me. The race was enjoyable, even if in the last laps Prost attacked me. But I controlled him, driving at the limit".

Nico Prost (Elk Motorsport) went on the last step of the podium in the first Spanish race of the championship: "In the first laps my team-mate Beretta slowed me down.
