VANISHED PODIUM AT PAUL RICARD

Race penalyzed by a twist in the finale for Matteo Bobbi at Paul Ricard in the penultimate round of the FIA GT 2009 championship.

With just a few laps to the end, when third place seemed almost conquered, an unscheduled splash and dash was necessary due to an anomaly in the previous stop in which all the necessary fuel was not transfered to the car. The number 33 MC12 Maserati crossed the finish line only in sixth position, unfortunately away from top positions.

Matteo Bobbi: "Up to the last pit stop everything seemed to be fine and we were hopeful to finish on the podium. After it we immediately realized that a problem occurred and a new stop has been unavoidable. It's a shame losing a good result in this way, but these things happen in motor racing".
