Podium in Marrakech race 1

14.04.2012 In race 1 in Marrakech, Morocco, I started in P2 on the starting grid. After the lights went off, I got a good start and got in to the lead in the first corner. The first laps I had some problems getting heat into my tires fast enough, so it was tough to keep in front of Campana, but after a few laps, my tyres got enough heat in the tires the situation improved lap after lap. I started building a gap, and managed to keep an easy controlled lead. I stayed in the lead from the start to the 12th lap, before I went in for my pitstop. In the pitstop I did a mistake and stalled the car, and the team had to restart my engine. This caused me to lose too much time in the pit lane, where I came out from the pits in P3. In the end I finished in 3rd position and got a podium. Stalling my car in the pits, took away my victory, but still a third place is a good result. I am taking the positives out of today. We were really quick today, and we have lots of potential. And there is another race tomorrow where we have the opportunity to make the most out of it. Tomorrow I will start in P6, and I am ready to overtake cars;)
