Fisichella Motor Sport - Budapest - Formula BMW review

03.08.2008: Fisichella Motor Sport - Budapest - Formula BMW review

In Formula BMW Europe, Mihai, Ollie and Pedro qualified for Saturday's race in 15th, 18th and 22nd positions respectively. Pedro finished the race in 16th position, improving six positions from his starting spot, but Mihai and Ollie unfortunately retired after being put out of the race by another driver hitting them. For Sunday';s race, Ollie qualified in 14th with Mihai behind him in 16th and Pedro on the 12th row in 23rd position.

Pedro finished in 16th position for the second time of the weekend, with Ollie crossing the line in 22nd. Mihai suffered his second retirement, once again after being hit by a competitor, causing the end to his race. Ollie was also hit and was forced to complete the race with a damaged rear wing and severe understeer.

The championship standings are extremely tight, with teams set for an exciting battle as the season begins to come to a conclusion. FMSI are now in fifth position with 207 points, just three points behind fourth placed Double R Racing and four further points behind third placed Eurointernational.

The next challenge for FMSI will be rounds 14 and 15 of the GP2 Series and 11 and 12 of Formula BMW Europe at the brand new Valencia street circuit in Spain on 23 and 24 August.

Paolo Coloni, Team Principal: "Our weekend was compromised by our qualifying performance. Obviously there was something in qualifying that we didn't quite understand, but we did find out what it was. Unfortunately the races are short so it is difficult when you start at the back. I am sure we will be back on track in Valencia and will be competitive and at the right end of the grid again."
