Highs and Lows of Knockhill

“Saturday was a tough day, we hit the ground running in FP1 but that didn’t quite continue through into FP2 and qualifying. I was a little disappointed as to where we lined up in qualifying, we were inside the top ten but behind our two main rivals.

“Sunday however was a different day; the heavens had opened and I knew our chances of scoring points became more hopeful! Race one couldn’t have gone much better, we got straight into the working window of the car and the pace was strong getting the win set us up nicely for the day. To be in a position to pick and choose when to push is always nice!

“Race two was a very controlled one, just managing the gap back to second and making sure we had a clean run after every safety car. It was all looking good for race three until the antics of the ride height struck. No boundaries were pushed. The roller went under the front splitter and the drivers side sill, and both cleared with no question. The passenger seal picked up damage during the race causing it to fail in that one area.

“Race three was one of those situations where you know you have the car under you, you have enough laps to pick up it was just about staying focused on the job in hand. Not for one second did I expect to be up in the top ten but I needed that, the team needed it. It just showed the true potential of the package when all the stars aligned.”
