Giacomo Piccini

"This was overall a good weekend. I wasn't able to participate in the free practice session very much and this may have caused a few problems for me to get a good feeling with the car and the team. Moreover during the first qualifying session, I made a costly mistake. I expected too much from the car and the tires that hadn't reached the right temperature and thus went off track at the Lesmo curve. I was nevertheless able to set the ninth best time but I missed the whole entire first qualifying session. During the race, I started off well.

"The start was full of excitement with Mazzoleni and Gattuso's accident that caused a little bit of confusion. I was able to avoid them and continue the race. I was then able to conquer the fourth place by overtaking Galeffi. This however didn't last long because I started having problems with the set up of the car. It was hard for me to stay on track in these conditions and I wasn't able to stop Cressoni from overtaking me. I unfortunately fell back into the fifth place."
