"I'm happy with today's result. With the warm-up taking place yesterday you never know what the weather is going to be like on the Sunday and how the car is going to handle, but we had a good car. The team did a great job, and the pit stops were good, we were able to gain a few positions. We pushed hard from start to finish but unfortunately there were no yellow flags that might have helped us move up a few more. I'm still fourth in the championship so that is also satisfying."
12th Charles Zwolsman #34 Mi-Jack / Ford-Cosworth / Lola / Bridgestone
"I had a good start but I was stuck on the outside so I had to cut the chicane and had to give up the position I had gained. I cut the chicane again when I was fighting with Legge and Dominguez so I got a 10 second penalty because of that. Fortunately I able to build up a 10 second lead on the car behind me and keep my position. Considering everything that happened going from 16th to 12th is a decent result."
