The weekend of Esteban Guerrieri in the fifth double round of the German Formula Renault didn`t have the shine of the last races.

In the two competitions disputed on Saturday and on Sunday, Esteban finished thirteenth and nineteenth, loosing important points in the fight for the championship.

The Argentinian driver started with problems when he finished twenty-seventh in the qualifying due to a touch with his teammate that made him go to pits and not go out any more.

¨It was complicated because in the first lap I went out behind my teammate Smith and in the first curve in the chicane, he braked to early. I tried not to crash but unfortunately I couldn`t.¨

The pole was for Hannes Lachinger (Ma-con Racing), who now is fourth in the championship five points behind Guerrieri, due to his victory in the first competition and the fourth place in the second.

With the target of passing lot of cars to be in the best place possible on Sunday, the car of the Jenzer Motorsport finished thirteenth and made use of that Christian Klein (JD Motorsport), leader of the tournament didn`t complete the race.

¨I started very well, in the first lap I passed seven cars. I couldn`t run with a good set up of the car because of the crash on Friday. I confident for Sunday because Klein didn`t finish and he will start from the back¨.

On Sunday the rain said present, but it wasn`t a big problem for Esteban, who after started thirteen, finished sixth, until he was penalised with 30 seconds because he passed with yellow flag. Finally Guerrieri finished nineteenth

¨I made a good start in spite of the rain. The spray of their cars in front me didn`t let me see with clearness. I finished sixth but I was penalised with 30 seconds. The car was good with the set up for rain¨ said the Argentinian who will return to the country on Wednesday 14th. after seven longs months in Europe.
