A race started from the pit-lane and drivers who were not concentrated enough, did not allow Swiss Italian duo to finish in the points.

The young Swiss driver, Joel Camathias (24), and his strong Italian team-mate, Paolo Ruberti, had another unlucky race day. Just after the warm-up, where Paolo set the third fastest time, GNM guys found a water leak in the car, the guys repaired and changed that broked water-pipe, but the #7 Saleen was forced to start the race from the pit-lane. In the race first a Porsche and then a Maserati hit the GNM Saleen in the rear left side caused Swiss Italian duo two tyre punctures.

"I`m pretty angry with that drivers who are not concentrated enough. I understand very well that in a race everything it can happen, but some mistakes are very stupid! A part from that the car wasn`t so bad in the race. Considering that the Saleen cars are running with a really small rear wing, we went quite well, but we are confident that the FIA is going to allow us of the Saleen to use last year`s rear wing for the rest of the season, because right now we are very penalized."

We will see Joel back in action with his Saleen on May, 29th , at Imola.
