Nathanael Berthon King of Magny-Cours: the Draco Driver wins the race in the French circuit

A perfect race for Nathanael Berthon and the Draco team today in Magny Cours. The french driver, who started second, was immediately very fast, with a clean and careful driving. The perfect pit stop of Draco team completed the work and took the driver on the top step of the podium. Despite the traffic on track generated by various lapped, the track slippery at times due to uncertain weather conditions between wet and dry, the fight with Ricciardo behind him, Berthon was a magician in driving and he has completed a successful race.

The interviews after Magny Cours

Draco team rejoices at the victory of French driver NATHANAEL BERTHON who said immediately after the race "I am very happy because the car was really fast and we did a great job with the team. Despite the track conditions keep changing, we made the right choices and I won. Now we work for Budapest. "

Unlucky day for JULIAN LEAL who fails to gain a better grid position because slowed by another driver on his fastest lap in qualifying. "The weather this weekend has always been uncertain - Leal said after race 2 - In the first race it rained and I had a problem with the shock absorber that has been resolved today. In qualifying this morning I could go fast but when I tried the best lap a driver braked in front of me and then I couldn't improve my time. In race I started with rain tires because there was a risk of rain, but then in the dry track I had to go very slowly and I wait to be able to change them. After the pit stop I overcame Grubmuller, but then I punctured a tire and had to return in pit a second time. It was beginning to rain so we decided to change tires again, but then it stopped to rain again, so I could not do much on track. "

Very satisfied the Draco team "This victory was built with hard work - says NADIA MORINI, Team Manager Draco - The race strategy was excellent, as the speed in the pit stops and tires choice. I can say that this is a victory in which driver and team have worked together to improve not only this weekend but also in the preceding months. Nathanael is on car only 2 years and he is rookie in the league, so with this first place he believe in himself so much and I'm sure that working hard we can achieve great results. "
