" I'm very happy for the pole and victory. It is a fantastic result "commented Davide Rigon" During Saturday we worked very hard finding a good setup. In qualifying the car was not perfect and I made some mistake. It was not easy because certainly with this kind of qualifications do not have the chance to recover. After the first 15 minutes begins real battle. The race was really difficult as the safety car has cancelled all my advantage. After the restart, however, I managed to return a good margin. The machine with lots of fuel on board was different from qualifications, but I always continued to push at most. I am very happy for having won the first victory in Formula Superleague and I want to dedicate to my fantastic team.
With this result Beijing Guoan and Davide Rigon leave Donington in first place in overall standings with 79 points.
