The track is named the Circuit des Invalides, after the historic Les Invalides complex that the race takes place around.
“Nearly halfway through the race we had the full course yellow and I decided to make a call and come into the pits and it helped us. We recovered a little, gained a few positions and ended up 7th, which is better than we expected, and scored a few points. Overall, after a poor qualifying session, I think we managed to recover quite well. It’s good for the team to move up in the championship and we will keep working hard. We have a double-header coming up in Berlin and we are aiming for Super Pole in qualifying and to improve the race results.”
“It's a real shame that we had to take a penalty and not be able to maximise our qualifying performance. We did everything we could in the race but it didn't work out. I think we proved we have the pace but we just need a smooth weekend. The start of the race was tricky, I seemed to end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. With a compromised strategy I think we lost the potential for points today as I think a top seven would have been possible. We will learn from this weekend and focus our attentions on Berlin.”
“Nelson’s strategy in the race saw him able to move to within reach of the points and then capitalise when there were incidents ahead of him. It was more disappointing for Oliver, who we opted to pit later, but he was still able to move up the order, keep pace and get to within touching distance of a top ten finish. To extract the positives, we have moved up a place in the Manufacturers’ Championship and have salvaged the day by collecting six points. We are clearly not overjoyed with the result but we will focus on Berlin and our aim is to get both drivers fighting at the top in both qualifying and the race.”
