Saavedra finished today's race second, after starting third. This is his fourth podium so far this season.

"It was a good race in the #27 car. I am a bit disappointed because I wanted first place very badly. I gave it my best, but it was just not good enough. It is a bit of déjà vu getting first, second and third again with Vautier and Guerrieri. Today was important points for the championship. I just need to stay focused and look ahead. A big thanks to my AFS Racing / Andretti Autosport crew for all of their hard work. I am very happy and looking forward to what is next."

Carlos Muñoz, Team Dialy-Ser, No. 26

Munoz started today's race fourth and finished fifth. He moves up from sixth to fifth in the championship points standings.

"I was somewhat disappointed in my result today, but the points we earned are still good for the championship. I am disappointed because we were running very strong the whole day leading up to the race. During practice, our car was very good with long distance. At the start of the race, Sebastian (Saavedra) and I were running really close to each other. Towards the end of the race, my tires were really worn, so it was hard to make passes. In the end, I have to be pleased with fifth place and keep pushing for the top positions."
