Barcelona Race 1 -- Missed opportunity for DAMS

Nicolas Lapierre: retired Kazuki Nakajima: 15th

DAMS scored one point today, with Nakajima's fastest lap, despite of a disappointing race. Kazuki who started 14e on the grid, did a good start and was 7th after the first corner. After his pit stop during the safety car, he was stuck behind a car with difficulties to overtake. Kazuki was unable to avoid him when the driver made a mistake and had two more pit stops.

Nicolas Lapierre was 3rd when he lost chances to make a good result after his car stopped due to an engine failure.

Kazuki Nakajima: "I did a good start and I was 7th after the first corner. After my pit stop, I was behind a car and it was not easy to overtake it. I was waiting for the driver to make a mistake but when he did it I could not avoid him. The car was damaged and I had to stop two more times. After, the car was good and I did the fastest lap".

Nicolas Lapierre: "I did my pit stop during safety car intervention and I was 3rd when I left the pit. I was on a good pace when the engine failed. I am very disappointed because we had a strong opportunity to be on the podium".

Jean-Paul Driot: "Despite of all the problems we had today I am satisfied because both drivers had demonstrated their performance".
