The Cruzes Break German Jinx As Menu Takes Maiden Win At Oschersleben

Muller twice 3rd and many points scored allow to retain P1 in both Championships

OSCHERSLEBEN, 5th September 2010 -- The Chevrolet team put together another strong performance today at Oschersleben, in the eighth round of the 2010 WTCC, as Alain Menu won race 1, giving the team their first win ever on the German circuit. This is also the fifth win of the Cruze this year and the first for the Swiss driver in 2010. A consistent Yvan Muller finished third on both races, after a somehow disappointing qualifying, thus keeping the lead in the Drivers' standings, where he is now preceding Andy Priaulx.

Rob Huff had an unluckier week-end. The Brit, who started race 1 from the second spot on the grid, took the lead of the race ahead of Menu but was later stopped by a sanction, which appeared excessive to most observers, following the many contacts occurred in turn one. In race 2, Rob managed to climb up positions throughout the field to take seventh ahead of Menu.

With the many points scored today, Chevrolet is strengthening its leading position in the Manufacturers' standings, ahead of the last European event in Spain and the two Asian rounds.
