Race 5


Ye Yifei (Absolute Racing) – 2nd Race 5


“Me and Rinus are very closely matched together in terms of lap times, so getting the start right was the only chance. He had a good start and me also, but I couldn’t gain an advantage over him so had to follow him through Turn 1. In the first two laps I was really pushing hard to try to overtake, but you really lose the downforce in fast corners.

By pushing really hard in the first two laps I think I overheated my tires and I made a mistake on the last sector in Lap 3 or 4, and I lost a big time to Rinus. Towards the end of the race, I thought there was not much of a chance so I just tried to bring home second place and save some tires for the last race.”


Rinus Veekay (Hitech Grand Prix) – Winner Race 5


“It was a lot warmer than yesterday. You could really feel it from how the car handled but also driving-wise. Towards the end I had sweat coming into my eyes! My trainer and I had a whole plan for hydration before the race, and cooling. We trained towards races like this where it’s so hot so that I can have an advantage over other drivers. You could feel that it was warmer, but it was manageable.”






Alessandro Ghiretti (Hitech Grand Prix) – 3rd Race 5


“I think it’s really good for me, for my future, to race with drivers who have a lot more experience than me. It’s a big advantage for me for my future. I made a good start, but I had to defend a bit from the guys behind me so [the leaders] took a gap. Also, I was on an old set of tires, so I hope the next race will be better on the new set.”



DRAGON (B-Max Racing Team) – Masters winner Race 5

“I’m glad to win this race, but today there were no big fights. Next time I would win after a big battle!”





Race 6


Ye Yifei (Absolute Racing – Winner Race 6

“I had the same mindset as the previous race to get a good start and try and overtake at Turn 1. I think me and Rinus both had a good start. At Turn 1, I knew he would brake very late to stop me making it around the outside, so I tried to brake early and come back on the exit. I managed to do that. After that was the safety car and then my pace was very good. I think it was a very good weekend overall. We had very good pace all weekend. We still have some gap to Rinus and let’s try to do the best in the next round to make it up.”




Rinus Veekay (Hitech Grand Prix) – 2nd Race 6


“In Lap 1 coming out of Turn 6, on the exit a piece of front wing broke off and the front wing flap fell down, which gave me a lot of understeer. The whole race I was fighting understeer. I made a little bit of a mistake at Turn 1, locking the wheels, which gave a gap for Yifei to come on the inside. But still, P2 and good points for the championship.”



Alessandro Ghiretti (Hitech Grand Prix) – 3rd Race 6


“I think I need to learn more. I will check with my engineer where I lose, where I can find more time on the track, and come back better in the next round. P3 all the time is good, but I want to try to win!”




DRAGON (B-Max Racing Team) – Masters winner Race 6

“This time I had an enjoyable battle! I was lucky because there was an incident at the first corner, but I passed that safely. I knew that if I stayed in front, it was difficult to overtake me, with the downforce and everything. So, I concentrated on holding the position.”
