ADM Motorsport back on the overtaking lane
Norbert Siedler finished 6th in todays IFM-Race for ADM Motorsport on the challenging street circuit of Porto, posting the quickest lap time of the day, while his younger team mate Michele Caliendo also made some good progress finishing 14th, his best result of the season so far.
Renato Melchioretto (Team Principal): "It is needless to say, that we lost pole position only due to a lot of bad luck this morning. Norbert was obviously on his way to P1, with the best intermediate time in the second sector, when some backmarkers held him up just a few hundred meters before the finish line. Race 1 was pretty short, considering that it was suspended after only 4 laps and then finished behind the pace car. The entire team sighs with relief as we were finally able to show our true potential and I am also happy for Michele Caliendo, who was clever enough to avoid any contacts, achieving a strong result on this difficult track. This is a very competitive championship but with some more experience under his belt he will be soon in a position to go for points."
Norbert Siedler (P6, Best lap time): "My emotions are a little bit mixed as, on the one hand side we were at least able to prove that this team can be very competitive, but on the other hand side it was sad not to achieve what we had actually deserved. The handling of the car was really good, definitely good enough to go for a podium, but the race was over before it really had begun."
Michele Caliendo (P14): "The result is ok for now, as I am beginning to understand the car, and this race, even if very short, was still very difficult. I followed Norbert in yesterdays free practice, which helped me a lot and I will also continue to study his telemetry this evening. My goal is to improve my lap times by one and a half second, which is possible if I manage to put all the little bits and pieces together."
