Draco Team: the comments after Silverstone

After the weekend in Silverstone, Draco Team comments the races.

Nadia Morini, Team Manager Draco

"I am very satisfied for the race of Marco Barba. After a good Superpole, the race of Saturday has been without podium because Barba has been "expel" out of the track and I want to underline "expel" although this is an strong statement. Sunday he drove with a wing completely offsite after a another crash from a "car hunters", but Marco is equally able to arrive at the end of the race. He would certainly deserved the podium but he has lost many positions due to Fauzy, which was subsequently penalized, but he had compromised the race of Marco. I'm glad of how this young driver is growing.

"I give an explanation to my regret when I say "car hunters." Sport should grow young people with the feeling of honour, to arrive at the goal without strange methods. I see many drivers who use the system to throw out the enemy to eliminate the competitor. This method does not like me and I hope that the drivers know that this is not a truly victory, you can climb on the podium but if you look in the mirror in the evening you will have to tell the truth!

"The weekend of Bertrand has left us a little incredulous. Baguette is a good driver and certainly at Silverstone he did not see his potential. After good times in tests and in qualifying, he has unfortunately removed the work done with the Superpole and with the not good race 2. This is certainly an isolated incident. I believe in Bertrand and I am sure he will demonstrate his talent."

"It has been a very good, because I was at the superpole and this was positive for me. I'm sure that the results will arrive soon. I think that they could have been arrived at Silverstone if there no were accident at the two races. I want to thank my Team, because they are like my second family and they have done big work, like at the other races."

Bertrand Baguette, Draco Driver

"The weekend started really well during the two days of testing during which we were constantly very fast. We have always been very close to the best time! The first qualifyng session confirmed that but the superpole went really bad : only position 11. We lost one second for a reason that we still have to find. I took a really good start at the first race and I overtook two cars. I was P9 after the first lap. During the race I could overtook a few cars to finish P6. I started the second one P9. I took again a really good start. I was fighting for the sixth position at the first corner but Carbone couldn't avoid me and touched me at the rear with his front wheel. I was the last car after the first lap and I could finish P16 even if my car had a broken rear suspension. I'm really disappointed because after the work we did during two days we deserved a lot better, at least one podium, but racing is like this and now we have to be focused on the next meeting which is Hungaroring."
