Istanbul's corners "the key" for SEAT Sport

Exactly three weeks after Brno hosted the FIA World Touring Car Championship, it's the turn of Istanbul to stage the two Turkish rounds of the series on Sunday, September 24th. The two Czech races saw a pair of 3rd place finishes for Yvan Muller - a performance that lifted the Frenchman into 5th position in the Drivers' series - while SEAT Sport is now just one point behind BMW in the Manufacturers' standings. After failing to score in Brno, James Thompson will lose a little of his maximum success ballast for the Istanbul races and so the Englishman is confident of a far better performance in Turkey.

Gabriele Tarquini holds the S2000 lap record around the 5.338km Istanbul Park Racing Circuit for both qualifying (2:04.525 / 154.32kph) and race (2:05.771 / 152.79kph) and won the last WTCC encounter there 12 months ago. The Italian driver is cautious about predicting another win this year, but is optimistic that the circuit's twists and turns hold the key to a successful weekend for SEAT.
