I AM ABOUT TO DOCK... AT PORTO!

Dear Friends,

I am about to set off to Portugal where I will try to put myself across between all the unleashed guys of the Touring World. The deed of Brno will be difficult to repeat, but both my team mate and myself will go there motivated and convinced that we will manage to get something good home.

Well, street tracks tend to favour the agility of rear-wheeled cars therefore I think that especially in qualifying it will be hard to be in the top ten. Nevertheless, we can have our say in the race and obviously the winning recipe starts from "keeping into the track". Street tracks traps often make them pretty tricky: I hope to be one of those guys finishing the first lap still with a mint car.

This year, I have been bumped 12 times on 12 races during the first lap. Someone could say that I brake too early, but at Brno, in race one someone already bumped me at the starting line in the middle of the main straight!!!!!

I understand that if I driver does not like the hand-to-hand fight then he has to be pretty masochist to race in WTCC, but I think that in our races agonism is pushed too much to the limit and that would need to be hold a bit more. We will see... I am talking like a pest, I realize that, therefore I will skip on that, I tell you good bye and I will refer you to the news I will send you from Porto.

Ciaoooooo
