RACE WINNER QUOTES


Yann Ehrlacher (Race 1)
: “Honestly starting from P5 and when you have a tight race like this and there is no crash, you can’t go back to P1. I was lucky enough… for sure we did a great start. I jumped Thed at the start and after I was lucky that the two three firsts crashed together in T2 and I take the opportunity to go in the inside and after it was good to be P1.



For sure we did a bit of team race because we had a big gap to the guys behind and I say ‘yeah, we had to manage a bit our pace’ but that was it. I knew that [my uncle Yvan Muller] was the [holder of the] record of poles and also victories as well.



 It feels great already to be on the same grid and even on this list for the winning driver in Hungary. Big congratulations to the other guys, Esteban and Norbi, but I’m happy to share this with Yvan.”



Rob Huff (Race 2):
“It was really good for us, we’ve been struggling a bit with pace this weekend so to get that crucial P10, which gave us the pole position for the first race today was really important.



To make a good start, we changed the set-up a little bit in qualifying, we improved it and we had a really good race with [Dániel] Nagy and luckily not too close. He never got too close to make a move but testament to Sébastien Loeb Racing and Volkswagen for the hard work they put in this weekend to really try to improve the car in every session, in every qualifying, every race and we have to be very happy.”



Gabriele Tarquini (Race 3): “
I’m very sorry for Norbi because he made a fantastic weekend and in the end he finished without win. Today was fantastic because he scored a fantastic pole position and he was in the best position to win the third race. Unfortunately for him my start was better than his start and in this was the key of my win.



After with the same car it’s very difficult to overtake the car in front of you. Norbi was very fast on this track, he was unbeatable in qualifying and in every session he was faster than me but in the end the only key to win the race was to beat him on the start. I tried my best and it happened.”





When ice hockey ace Vas met WTCR star Michelisz




Top Hungarian ice hockey player János Vas was among the big sporting names at WTCR Race of Hungary today. Fresh from captaining the national team to second place in the Division 1 Group A World Championship in Budapest last night, the 34-year-old used his visit to the Hungaroring to catch up with another Hungarian sporting star, Norbert Michelisz.



Shortly after landing the DHL Pole Position for Race 3 of the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO counter, Michelisz joined Vas for a photocall in the pitlane at the Hungaroring with a wheel and tyre from Michelisz’s BRC Racing Team Hyundai i30 N TCR used as a giant replacement for an ice hockey puck.



 “I’ve been to the Hungaroring for Formula One and the DTM but it’s a different atmosphere today with Hungarian drivers competing,” said Vas. “It feels like an ice hockey match with the atmosphere but it’s obviously a bigger place with more people. I’m a big fan of Norbi and I was happy to see his performances in qualifying.”



While Vas is a fan of fast cars, he said that he prefers to use ice hockey for his adrenalin fix. Michelisz, meanwhile, shared Vas’s disappointment after the Hungarian team lost out on winning their match with Great Britain with 15 seconds to go. “I’m sorry for that because I know what it’s like to lose so close to the end.”
