for Rigon/Beijing at the Nurburgring
Aftera great performance in the inaugural Superleague Formula Davide Rigon was back on track at the weekend at Germany’s Nurburgring for Round 2, where he took another podium and consolidated Beijing Gouan's leadership in the league with 151 points over PSV Eindhoven (127) and FC Sevilla (120)
“I arrived here in Germany with the aim of winning another major and consolidate my position in the standings.” Comment Davide Rigon
“Despite not winning here, I managed to increase my posting the second after two races made many overtaking. Since the free practice we had a problem with our propeller that I was not allowed to exploit the potential of the whole vettura.Purtroppo the engine was a 9-cylinder instead of 12.
"Given the short time between the free practice and qualifications was not possible to replace the propeller and why I failed the top four of my group. All the guys have worked hard to replace the damaged units and for this I thank them. Despite the setup of the car in race 1 was not perfect, I managed to make a big comeback, concluding the fifth. In the second appointment I have made a great start recovering from the beginning many positions, then completing the comeback with an excellent third place. Frankly after qualifying I would not have ever expected this podium. I am really happy for this podium. Now start working for Zolder “
Next meeting for Davide Rigon and Superleague Formula is on Oct. 5 at Zolder.
