Now we bringing you highlights from that event and post-race interview with top 3 drivers.
Zandvoort was Cruz’s home race and for sure winning here must feels twice as good for him, especially if it is fifth win in row. Garcia follows with his Ferrari second and showed us absolutely stunning driving and strategy, because he managed to avoid any incidents and make it from 7th position to 2nd.
Here are some post-race words and thoughts regarding Zandvoort race from top 3 drivers:
R. Cruz (1st)
Congratulations for winning after start from second place! Zandvoort was your home race, is winning here for you even more special thanks to it? And this is your fifth win in row, do you looking forward to this years MEGTS champion title – seems that you’re unstoppable!
Winning at your home race always feels better and more special and especially if you’ve had to work for it. In started from p2 so I went for an different strategy. I went with 50l of fuel so that I would have a lighter car for the whole race. I also went for a tire change. I managed to snatch the lead into t1 and managed to create a gap straight away. When the pitstops came Garcia did not change his tires so I had to work really hard to catch up to him with 5 minutes left on the clock!
At the moment I’m not thinking about the championship just yet. I’m taking things race per race. I’d love to be champion but we’ll have to wait and see!
M. Garcia (2nd)
First of all, congratulations for excellent race! How do you managed to finish second, do you set any strategy before race, or you just tried to avoid incidents and hope for the best? Do you aiming to third or second/first overall position in MEGTS championship?
