Guerrieri back in front on the #RoadToMalaysia in WTCR
Esteban Guerrieri is back in front in the battle to win the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO.
His advantage on the #RoadToMalaysia is a mere one point over erstwhile leader Néstor Girolami, his ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport team-mate and fellow Argentine.
After finishing P12 in Race 1 at WTCR Race of Netherlands, Honda-powered racer Guerrieri said: “It hasn’t been my best day. Even with 50 kilograms compensation weight, I should have been a bit faster in qualifying, though not being able to use my new tyres at the end – because of the red flag – definitely cost me positions.
“I benefitted from penalties to other drivers to start P14, made a good start and finished P12. The first few laps were intense so once things settled down, I just focused on protecting the car. Yes; it’s the championship lead, but a lot can happen in two races tomorrow, so we’ll work to make the car as fast as possible to make sure we’re in the mix.”
