ADM drivers Norbert Siedler and Allam Khodair finished today`s second round of the Superfund Euro 3000 at Estoril in 4th and 10th position respectively. Siedler, who had started from Pole Position stole the engine after big confusion at the start when Johnny Reids car was pulled to the back of the grid, without causing a restart. Allam Khodair made a perfect first lap from, flying from 11th to 4th position, but collided with Eduardo Bisconsin, what caused a nervous steering.
Renato Melchioretto (Team Principal)
"A rookie should be happy about a 4th place but Norbert today has any reason to be dissapointed. In my 34 years of motor racing I have never seen such confusion at a start of a formula race. Norbert was waiting for green lights in first gear, when marshals pulled Johnny Reids car slowly back through the grid. This situation lasted for almost 30 seconds and any other decision than a restart is not acceptable. Norbert was 0,7 seconds quicker than the rest and once again showed some impressive overtaking manoeuvres. Allam is still in a learning stage and just has to cool down a little bit."
Norbert Siedler (4th place)
"What can I say? I was the quickest man of the race, but I simply stole the engine. I don' know yet what happened in the back of the grid, but it certainly lasted too long. The 4th place is not the position I expected but I am looking forward now to Jerez."
Allam Khodair (10th place)
"I had a perfect start from 11th to 4th position but collided with Bisconsin in the 3rd lap. After this incident the car was very nervous on the steering and the rest of the race was more or less a test for me."
