SALVADOR DURAN RETURNS TO ACTIVITY IN HUNGARY
OXFORD, England (July 11, 2007) - Salvador Duran returns to activity this weekend in Hungary, where for the first time World Series by Renault 3.5 will race at the technical and winding 4.384-Km. circuit of the Hungaroring, during its fourth event in the season.
Duran talked about it: "I think in the last two years this has been the hardest wait, because it has been the longest one between races, since I've used to race in British F3 and A1GP Series in the past. I really think that this has been good, because I have been thinking a lot about what is happening in my career and what it is happening within the team and my sponsors. We are doing well, each day we are getting better, each day we are stronger."
And he added: "I feel better. I feel that I am more mature. I am focused on what I am doing and I feel that everything is improving. Then we are heading to the track in Hungary, after a very good third place in Monaco, forgetting what happened with the pole position in Monaco. I think we are coming well-prepared physically and mentally; I've been training very hard and the team has worked a lot in the car. The engineers have been always there in the shop working too."
"The Hungaroring is a track that for our team is of vital importance, because is kind of a home track, since the Hungarian circuit is probably the closest to Austria where the team is based. Of course, all tracks are important, but this one because it is the closest and because my mechanics are mainly Hungarian, it is going to be special to us. Therefore, we are looking forward to get this circuit and hopefully we can obtain another good result," former British F3 National Class champion said.
"This is a circuit that I don't know, that it is very difficult for what I've seen in the Playstation, since I've never raced there. It is pretty complicated and it's the same for all, but we have to get there with the mentality to push as soon as possible and as best as possible. The track has several narrow and fast curves and it will be a matter of getting a little bit earlier Hungary, to get to know the track and to get as much information as possible to have an idea of the circuit," he said.
"I want to thank specially to all my sponsors for all the support that they give me, off and on track, in the good and in the bad times. Thanks to them we are here," Telmex-backed driver said.
