Alex Serafini Team Manager: “For us Busca has always been a difficult track and we have always struggled, but thanks to the great work of the Team we managed to stay very close to our opponents. Thomas tried to win but he knows very well what our goals are and on this track to try to overtake we have to take risks and there was no need to exaggerate. Too bad for Diego’s crash in race 1 that compromised his race. We continue to work to prepare for the next races. “
