HEAR FROM COLIN
“What a weekend and what a journey we’ve been on! Every setback creates an opportunity for a comeback, but considering how I felt on Friday night I couldn’t have imagined such a points haul!
Any time you get two podiums in a day is very good, but I’m even more pleased with finishing sixth in Race Three from 10th on the grid – the 10 points is a bonus. I’ve got over 40 points this weekend – not bad, not bad at all!
Qualifying on pole was the highlight of the weekend without a doubt. We overcame the obvious and unexpected hurdles to deliver that result, and nobody was more delighted to have their mojo back than me!
Obviously, I’d love to have won a race for many reasons, but we didn’t quite have that next level of performance needed to do that here. We played to our strengths and closed in quite a lot on the championship lead, and that’s the big takeaway. We should be very proud of our achievements as a team.
Physically I feel okay. Adrenaline gets you through an awful lot in a racing car, but I’m pleased I have more than a month to the next round to be back at 100 per cent. I feel we are properly in the fight now, it’s game on!”
Race 1: P2
Race 2: P3
Race 3: P6
