Jani stopped by technical problem.

The 3 DAMS drivers did not take any points from the first race of the weekend after Neel Jani retired because of a technical problem just 2 laps before the end of the race (he was 2nd at the time) while Bruce Lorgere-Roux and Memo Rojas struggled with difficult race circumstances.

Neel Jani : "This second place, 2 laps from the end was good for me for the championship. In the end we did not score any points and we are very disappointed. The team had changed the fuel pump of my car 2 races ago in order to avoid a problem like that and it broke. This is motorsport, we have a big gap behind Mondini in the championship but we will push hard as it is still possible to win it."

Memo Rojas : "My car was good at the beginning of the race and the ones in front of me were slower. Unfortunately Imola is not an easy track for overtaking without any risk. I broke my front wing when I tried to pass Proetto, then I could not expect to come back in the points."

Bruce Lorgere-Roux : "I don't understand why the Marshalls gave me a penalty. When I left my pits after my wheel change I drove on the fast lane of the pit lane and suddenly Sharp started from his pit stop without taking care of me and pushed me against the wall. He should have been penalised and this cost me at least a 6th place."
