Fresh from the sweet taste of champagne, a beaming Ralf was quick to praise the hard work of the Hitech squad:
“I am really happy to be on the podium here. I struggled with neck pain at the beginning of the weekend, so didn’t perform at my best in qualifying, but the races went really well. I really want to thank the team, for all their hard work and pushing after such a tough start to the season. A podium was our goal and that’s what we achieved.”
With some shiny silverware accompanying us on our flight home to base, we sign off with a few words, from our team principal Oliver Oakes and look forward to chasing some more trophies in Budapest next month.
“Pau has been a good weekend for us. We made a step forward in overall team performance and we felt in qualifying we had enough to be in the first two rows but a combination of the streets of Pau’s walls biting our drivers with a few minutes to go or it not quite coming together for them.”
“The Grand Prix de Pau was looking to be particularly promising with all 4 cars inside the Top 10 sadly for Jake and Nikita then were hit into under safety car but nevertheless it was a positive weekend for us. To have our cars constantly fighting in the points and Ralf bringing home a podium allows us to leave with in a good frame of mind for Budapest.”
