Nunes back on form, no joy for Van der Garde

iSport is back in action today after a three week break at the Nurburgring in Germany for round 5 of the GP2 Series. At a cold and windy circuit iSport racer Diego Nunes qualified eight for tomorrow's feature race despite the young Brazilian abandoning his best lap after Luca Filippi spun at the chicane four minutes from the end. His iSport team mate Giedo van der Garde had less luck as he struggled to find grip. Van der Garde was unfortunate as his best lap also fell during the yellow flag period so the Dutch rookie was unable to improve from a disappointing twenty-first.

Diego Nunes

"It was good, it could have been better as I lost my best lap because of the yellow flag and some traffic, I would have been two or maybe three tenths quicker so maybe fifth or sixth but still it's alright. We are going to work on the car for the race and we are going to try and go forward in the race tomorrow".

Giedo van der Garde

"It did not go too well today. On the first set of tyres I made a mistake in the last sector and I got some traffic all through the session. On the last set of tyres I was quicker but there was a yellow flag so I had to back off, after that the tyres were finished which was disappointing. It's quite cold so there was not much grip but I hope to make up places in the race".
