Drivers’ reactions after the 4 Hours of Monza

ELMS - 15/05/2019 - Sophie LIGER

Bruno Senna, RLR MSport #43: “We had decent pace throughout the weekend and the RLR MSport ORECA feels very strong. In the race, my charge was frustrated by traffic, but we were then a little unlucky; an electrical issue caused a huge time-loss and it was a cascade effect from there, because Safety Cars and cautions punish you when you’re further back than you should be. It’s quite a sad day for us in one sense, but we’re all very happy that the car has moved forward so much.”

Alex Brundle, United Autosport #32: “I’m really happy. A massive congratulations to the team who did a great job today. And to my two co-drivers who were mega. The car was one of the quickest cars on track throughout the race, which put me in a great position. It was then just a case of a fight for the podium positions. I thought we might be able to keep the Idec car behind but I got unlucky in traffic and lost the second place spot but then it was great to bring the car home for the team’s first podium of this season.”

Filipe Albuquerque, United Autosports #22: “P4 actually is an incredible result with Monza not being the strongest track for us. The team did a really good job and with fourth place we should be really happy because we really didn’t have the pure pace for that so congratulations to the team. We will move onto the next one and from now on theoretically we should be in a much better position with the package we have and we should be much more competitive compared to our rivals. Bring on Le Mans.”

Martin Hippe, Inter Europol Competition #13: “Nothing much special during my stint. The car was a sort of ok and I could maintain my lap times. As always after the start in the chicanes you just have to be lucky and that depends on where you are. And I wasn’t really lucky this time so I lost a couple of places. I also lost a bit during the first safety car period. But so far so good in the championship. Keeping my fingers crossed for Léo.”

Nigel Moore, Inter Europol Competition #13: “It was a good race but there are still some things we need to get better in the car. And we will get those sorted before Barcelona. We were a bit unlucky with both pit stops, and with the full course yellows. But I am happy with the second place in the race and in the championship. My best to Léo and I wish him a quick recovery.”

Tommy Erdos, United Autosports #2: “I’m thrilled to be part of a podium with United Autosports. That was our aim at Paul Ricard and we were so disappointed it didn’t happen. We have such a good team – great drivers, mechanics and engineer and the car didn’t miss a beat so well done Simon, Ollie and the crew for giving us a great car. We’ve still got a bit of work to do on the handling front, but Wayne did a great job in qualifying and Garett’s stint was great – we were in with a shout from the word go today so I’m just really happy to be able to contribute to a podium. The whole team deserves it.”
