ADM in seventh heaven after Siedlers victory

ADM Motorsport celebrated a fantastic victory today, as their Austrian "homecomer" Norbert Siedler won the 8th Round of International Formula Master in Porto from 3rd position on the grid. Michele Caliendo came close to scoring his first points, but finally had to retire with a gearbox problem.

Renato Melchioretto (Team Principal): "This was a fantastic race weekend with an incredible winner and a very released team. To be honest with you, I was not sure if we could be on top of the podium yet, but as we all know, Norbert is an incredible driver, who adapts quicker than anybody else to a new car or to a new race circuit. Apart from that, he also brought some positive atmosphere back into the team and helped his younger team mate to get a better feeling from a drivers point of few. The fact that Michele was on the way to his first points underlines that and even, if he didn't finish the race, we could clearly see how important it is to keep pushing and focussing on the main aspects of the sport."

Norbert Siedler (P1): "I want to dedicate this victory to my team principal Renato, who always believed in my abilities and gave me this chance to race here in Portugal. ADM Motorsport didn't manage to achieve the results they where aiming for at the beginning of the season, but for me it was always clear that they can do a lot better. Fighting for pole position on Saturday I was aware of my chances today and I did everything that was necessary to secure this win for Renato and his crew."

Michele Caliendo (out): "I am happy for the team and happy with my progress considering I was already in 8th position with the positiv feeling of being close to scoring my first points. But then unfortunately a gearbox problem arrived and stopped my race. However, I am leaving this place not too disappointed, because I have learned a lot from Norbert and I hope we can keep him as a team leader and fight for top positions again during the next race at the end of July in Sweden."
