Two podiums and classification lead for Thomas Biagi at Slovakiaring

Two podiums and classification lead for Thomas Biagi at Slovakiaring

10.06.2013: Thomas Biagi has been protagonist in the Bratislava's round of the Superstars Series held at the Slovakiaring

Thomas Biagi has been protagonist in the Bratislava's round of the Superstars Series held at the Slovakiaring with validity only for the International series.



The Italian driving for Team Romeo Ferraris, sixth yesterday in a qualifying run yesterday with a flu, has been perfect at race one start gaining three places since the beginning and slotting in the top three at turn one behind his team mate Vitantonio Liuzzi (Mercedes-AMG) and Luigi Ferrara (Mercedes-AMG).


The top positions did not change until lap nine when an excursion of Ferrara gave Biagi the second position, that was afterwards kept until the chequered flag that was crossed ahead of Giovanni Berton (BMW).


In the second race Biagi started from the seventh position due to the partial grid inversion. The Italian initially tried to avoid to run excessive risks and then started a recover that made him gain several position until the flag that welcomed another second place for him. The race was won by Giovanni Berton (BMW), while Gianni Morbidelli (Audi) was on the third step of the podium. Retirement due to technical problems for Vitantonio Liuzzi instead.



Thomas Biagi:"T
wo second places were certainly the highest possible result today. The weekend started steep with yesterday's qualifying but all the men of Team Romeo Ferraris did a stunning job once again to give me a competitive car despite the 40kg sportive ballast that had quite an impact.


In race one I built the result at the start where I gained three positions: a consistent race pace allowed me to close behind Vitantonio but also made me hopeful for race two where I decided not to take excessive risks in the heat of the start. I afterwards managed to settle on a good race pace and another important result came in the end, which allows me to strengthen my classification lead.


Obviously is still to early to do classification reasoning as we are not halfway-through yet but I am certainly satisfied on starting on the right foot my experience as Mercedes-AMG works driver".


Thanks to the results obtained today, Biagi strengthened his classification lead and stands now at 105 points, 25 clear of Giovanni Berton, as the latter is now second at 80. Liuzzi follows at 76 and Ferrara at 56.


The Superstars Series will be back on track next 23 June in Zolder, Belgium.
