Nurburgring Race 2 - Looking forward Barcelona.

Monfardini & Perera left from the back of the grid of today's sprint race after yesterday's technical problems in race 1. Franck did an impressive 1st lap, gaining 11 places, before he was stopped by race control for a drive through penalty. He crossed the finish line in 15th position and took 5th best lap time of today's race. Ferdinando had a good race pace in race but had to deal with the traffic, finally he finished 10th. After the good result of Franck in Qualifying the DAMS Team hopes for Barcelona are to confirm the performance in race and take big points in the championship.

Ferdinando Monfardini : "Like yesterday my start was good, I passed few cars but I went on the grass in corner 7 and I lost the positions I gained before. Then I had to fight in the traffic, I passed Filippi then Di Grassi, the car was really good, finally I finished 10th from 21 on the grid which is not so bad. My goal is to get a better qualifying position in Barcelona and we should be able to get some points."

Franck Perera : "I tried my best at the start and I overtook a lot of cars in 1 lap, but I had a drive through penalty, I did not feel like had a anticipated the start, it was probably a little movement of the car. The car was quite good, now we need to forget what happened yesterday and work hard to be ready for Barcelona. I am confident, the results will come, we are working well together with the team."

Nest event : Barcelona 13th & 14th May
