Durango gained the first two points of the season in Monaco. Di Grassi made the best lap and Hernandez ended the race 8th. Di Grassi lost the chance to see the podium because one driver hit the back of his car at the start. His rear wing was broken in 2 parts. He pitted and changed the spare part. After few laps he signed the best lap of the race (lap 23rd). Nobody was able to improve his timing lap. Hernandez made a very good start, like he is used to do, moving up from 23rd to position 14th. He kept on improving his timing laps and finishing in position 8th.

Lucas Di Grassi:
Grid position: 11th
Arrival position: 11th

Cause of the crash I had to enter the pit for a long stop, indeed my rear wing was broken in 2 parts. Immediately we changed our strategy focusing myself on making the best lap. And we got it on the lap 23rd. Neither Valles nor Piquet Jr, who put on new tyres on the last 5 laps, could manage to reach my timing lap.

Sergio Hernandez:
Grid position: 22nd
Arrival position: 8th

We planned a good strategy that makes us gain the first point of the season. We decided not to risk because this is a particular track. The result shows we were right. I want to say that the pit stop was really fine. There is a good synergy with the team.
