The FIA GT is back on track this weekend at Budapest, for the fifth round of the season.

Paolo Ruberti has a revenge desire, after three not very fruitful exits finished with a retirement, his objective being getting back on the podium to turn around a championship mean with satisfactions so far.

The Hungaroring is located on the outskirts of Budapest and houses since 1986 the Hungarian Formula One Grand Prix.

The track is rarely used and therefore it is traditionally dirty outside the trajectory. The twisted layout makes overtaking difficult, a characteristic emphasized more in the past when a slow chicane was present after turn 3; in 2003, to improve the spectacle, the main straight was made longer and turn one was modified.

Paolo Ruberti:

"After the points harvested in the opening race at Silverstone, incidents and technical problems prevented us from express ourselves at the level of 2008 but we are still determined to fight for top positions. Budapest opens the second part of the season and the podium will be our minimum objective".
