No joy for iSport as the rain falls at The Ring....

It has been a disappointing weekend for iSport as the team leaves the Nurburgring with no rewards. iSport racer Diego Nunes started twentieth on a wet track but kept his cool to finish eleventh in difficult conditions, a small consolation after being taken out of a point scoring position by Pastor Maldonado in yesterday's feature race. Dutch iSport racer Giedo van der Garde started from twelfth and was running eighth when FMS driver Andreas Zuber hit the back of Van der Garde's iSport car forcing him into retirement, ending iSport's hopes of any points from the weekend.

The GP2 Series now moves on to Budapest in two weeks time.

Diego Nunes

"I was really disappointed from yesterday's result and had to start from twentieth. It was quite wet at the start and I managed to stay away from any accidents. The track started to dry through the race which made it difficult with the tyres. There was not enough time to change to slicks at the end as we would have lost too much time. I finished eleventh which was ok".

Giedo van der Garde

"I started from twelfth and I made up some places at the start to eighth but then Zuber hit the back of my car and I had to retire. It was a shame as I think we could have had a good race and scored some points so in the end it was a really disappointing weekend"
