ANOTHER GREAT START FOR Fauzy, LOPEZ LOOSES BIG POINTS CLOSE TO THE FINISH

Nurburgring , 28th May 2005 -- Following the decision of the stewards to cancel the best qualifying times of Kovalainen and Rosberg (lap times under yellow flag), Jose Maria Lopez started today's race on the second row and was expecting a good result from this race after the disappointment of Monaco. In the beginning Lopez was in the pace of the leaders and after passing Jani was keeping a solid 3rd position. After his pit stop Lopez was 5th behind Jani, for a long time and many attempts he tried to pass without success and finally got passed by PIQUET and PREMAT. Finally Lopez spun 4 laps before the end and went in the gravel trap, he managed to get back on the track and took 13th place.

Like in Barcelona Fairuz Fauzy had an incredible start, and, with the confusion of the start and a few cars crashed in the first meters of the race, Fairuz finished his first lap a 7th place from 24th on the grid! He did a safe race, defended his position as much as possible without taking crazy risks, at the end he crossed the finish line at 14th place, and gained a lot of experience on this track he did not know before.
