In spite of that he is not a protagonist in the fight for the victory -he finished nineth in the first race and seventh in the second, the perfonmance of Esteban Guerrieri in Nurburgring, sixth round of the German Formula Renault, showed an evident progress respect to his last presentation in Salzburg, where he finished thirdteenth and nineteenth. This time the potential of the Tatuus of the Jenzer Motorsport was more similar to the rest of the year.

As a consequence of this last two rounds with no visits to the podium, the argentinian lost the third position in the championship in hands of Ross Zwolsman, fourth and first in Nurburgring.

Guerrieri, of only 17 years, arrived to this competition 47 points behind the leader of the championship, the austrian Christian Klein (JD Motorsport) and he left at 71.

Klein got the pole position on saturday and he took the first competition disputed on saturday. On sunday, he finished third, behind Ross Zwolsman and Bruno Spengler.

Unfortunately it didn`t repeat the history of july when in this same circuit, usually used by the Formula One, Guerrieri harvested a victory -the third and at least the last one of the season- and a fourth place.

The start of the first race showed him thirdteenth. ¨I made a good start, I was eighth in the first lap. The car was good in the first half of the competition, but then in the last laps I was complicated with grip and beause of this I finished in tenth position¨, said Esteban after the race on saturday. Really the position of Guerrieri was nineth, due to Alexander Margaritis, who finished second in the race was disqualified.

The competition on sunday showed the argentinian starting from the nineth place of the grid with the expectative of advance the maxium as possible.

¨I made a bad start in the back but already in the first lap I passed two or three cars staying in sixth position. Then it was very difficult to pass and this make me to loose one place. In the last I had problems of oversteer in the car and I finished seventh. I leave happy, this was a better day (sunday) than yesterday (saturday), and now we must prepare for the next competition¨, recognised Esteban Guerrieri.
