Technical gremlins thwart iSport duo....

Monaco reaps the greatest rewards and the harshest penalties and luck was not with iSport in today's feature race. Dutchman Giedo van der Garde had no drive as the lights went out and was wheeled into the pits where his car was eventually fixed and restarted. Van der Garde rejoined the race all but 6 laps adrift of the field but set the 3rd quickest lap of the race, small consolation but showing the speed of his iSport car. Brazilian driver Diego Nunes also suffered technical problems during his mandatory pit stop. Nunes' was unable to engage the clutch and after the iSport mechanics tried to fix the problem with no avail, Nunes was forced to retire from the race.

Giedo van der Garde

"We had a problem at the start. It was a fault or sensor failure and after that I could not take off from the start. After that I had to come into the pits and the guys checked the engine and the sensors and the engine guy came and tried to fix it and they did. We went out and did the race but we were 6 laps behind so I ended up last but still P17. Anyway I think the race pace was very good I was 3rd quickest in the race but it's a shame we had that problem otherwise I think we could have had quite a nice race"

Diego Nunes

"We had a problem with the clutch when I stopped to do my pit stop I had no clutch and the car stalled and we couldn't fix it. We tried to restart the car many times but there was no clutch at all. I don't know why the clutch failed".
