Extraordinary Berthon gets the second place of the podium at Brno.

Excellent team strategy for the Team Draco

The beautiful race of Nathanael Berthon that gets him on the second step of the podium in the circuit of Brno. The French driver of the team Draco, with a good time in qualifying, started from the second row behind Coletti, Guerrieri and Salaquarda. Immediately on departing, Berthon passes on third position, coming near to the two in the lead in front of him. From 5 o. to 14 o. lap the rules planned the pit stops for all the drivers, some of them stop almost immediately and then they try to recover the frenzy of pit stops, during the race.Others, like Berthon, prefer to wait to do fast laps and then to go back in front. The Draco strategy for Berthon has undoubtedly been successful since the pilot, after making a series of fast laps, returned back in 2nd position behind Guerrieri. Lap after lap, the French pilot has increasingly approached to the first, registering fast laps and decreasing more and more the distance, coming very, very close.

The laps were not enough, however Berthon crossed the finishing line in 2nd position. Definitely a great race that has put in evidence the excellent performance of the driver and the team. Leal started today in 10o. row and won six positions, arriving at 13o.placement.

"Today was a good race - as said Nathanael Berthon - the pit stop strategy was successful and I've gained a position on Salaquarda, so I started chasing Guerrieri. I was driving very fast and catching up the distance, lap after lap. I finally decided not to risk further, because getting 2nd place is definitely a good result. "

"In qualifying this morning - said Omar Julian Leal - although the car was going so well, I could not do a good time and starting from 10th line, it was difficult then to reach the top. In the race however I recovered six positions and made some overtaking. Now we go to Magny-Cours where I will be trying to score points. "

"We're happy - says Nadia Morini, Draco Team Manager - we are working diligently to make grow and improve the riders physically and mentally and it seems that the results of this work are coming. Yesterday we had an excellent performance by Leal, today the podium of Berthon. We feel gratified and in the right way to follow".
