VERY WELL DONE ALBERTO

From P19 to P9. This is what an excellent Alberto Valerio, exploiting a shower fallen five laps before the end, has been able to do. Alberto drove on slick tyres under the rain while many other drivers stopped to change their rubber, so he recovered positions on positions. Davide Valsecchi, on the contrary, had to retire because of a contact while he was overtaking a competitor.

"Yesterday I called the rain -- Alberto Valerio said -- and the rain came. With five laps to go many drivers pitted for a tyre change but I did not, I stayed out under the rain with the slicks so I think I did a good job bringing home the car at P9. It has not been easy but I did it". Davide Valsecchi said: "Today really has not been my day and tomorrow it will be even harder because I will start from the last row. I will try to relax and have a good sleep because tomorrow morning I will need my right foot but even more my brain".
