Health problems for Estonian driver Marko Asmer meant that he didn’t take the start
Fabio Onidi“Of corse I’m very happy. First race and first win despite the third time in qualifying. I manager to get a good start overtaking immediately Nicolas Prost and at the first turn I tried the overtaking on Roldan. Then I just managed the race and the win arrived.”
Roldan Rodriguez“The race was good. I managed to get a good start, even if Fabio was faster and overtook me at turn 1. Unfortunately the weight difference was important. I’m satisfied anyway and congratulations to Fabio. “
Nicolas Prost“I didn’t have a good start and given I was slower than the top 2 I preferred not to take any risk and to stay third. Now let’s see what happens in race 2.”
