Top 10 for iSport duo at the new Algarve circuit.....

After rain in the practice sessions the sun returned for qualifying for the final round of the 2009 GP2 Series at the new Autodromo do Algarve circuit. Both iSport driver's Giedo van der Garde and Diego Nunes were quick throughout practice and carried this through to qualifying where both iSport racers were inside the top five for most of the session. With the track improving Giedo van der Garde and Diego Nunes dropped back in the last frantic moments, struggling with traffic, to finish ninth and tenth respectively.

The feature race starts tomorrow at 14:00pm UK time.

Giedo van der Garde

"I was ninth. I think it wasn't the best qualifying that we have had this year but it was not too bad I guess. I think it was the maximum so there wasn't any more. We will start ninth and we'll have to make the best out of it tomorrow".

Diego Nunes

"Qualifying started very good, we were top three, me and Giedo. Then we finished ninth and tenth and we did about the same lap time. It will be a tough race but starting in the top ten is not too bad so we will see what we can do in the race tomorrow".
