iSport nabs a point in season finale....

It was the final race of the 2009 GP2 Series. With the driver and team champions crowned there was an end of term feeling as the rest of the field aimed to finish the season on a high. It did not disappoint and a huge start line accident between the stalled Vitaly Petrov and Michael Herck brought out the red flag. As the race finally got underway iSport racers Diego Nunes and Giedo van der Garde took a big leap forward after the top six drivers were handed drive through penalties. The iSport duo have been closely matched all weekend and both crossed the finish line in tandem to take sixth and seventh with Nunes taking the last of the points.

Giedo van der Garde

"I finished seventh. It was not too bad actually we had a good start. It was a good race the car felt nice and quick so it went pretty well. I started from the back of the grid and finished seventh so it was a good result".

Diego Nunes

"I did a good start but in the second corner I had a problem, I was pushed out of the track. I won three positions on the start and then I lost four on the second corner. Then we had the red flag, and after the red flag I passed two guys and six guys got penalised so I managed to finish sixth and Giedo seventh so it was good, I got a point".
