Sunday 14th May 2006 - Barcelona Race 2 - Monfardini takes 6th place despite a missed start. Perera retires early after a contact with Piccione.

Ferdinando Monfardini has scored another point today after taking 6th place of today's sprint race in Barcelona. From 3rd place on the starting grid he came out of corner 1 at the 7th place after a missed start due to an excess of wheel spin. Ferdinando had then to press all the way on Pantano who finally made a mistake a few laps before the end of the race and gave to the DAMS driver the point of the 6th place.

Franck Perera had a good start today but retired just a few laps after when his car finished in the gravel with another car as they were fighting for 11th place.

Ferdinando Monfardini : "I lost a lot in the start, it is a shame, but finally I managed to score a point, When I was behind Pantano I put a lot of pressure on him making some attacks on the braking areas, I was faster than him and finally he made a mistake. After that I was alone on track and I managed to do very good lap times even with old tires. I want to thank the team who gave me a great car all the weekend."

Franck Perera : "This is a weekend to forget, my start was good today but in the fight with Piccione we went out together. This is over for Barcelona and I look forward being on track in Monaco."
