ERHAN JAJOVSKI
“The start of the race was really tricky. Manuel Biancolilla had a bold start and I had to give an instant response. We went side-by-side for a couple of corners but because the corner goes to the inside, I stuck to my position. In the last few laps, the guys behind me started battling and that made my day much easier!”

“Before tonight, I wasn’t expecting this result at all, since I was struggling in training. Qualifying was almost perfect, almost nailed a pole but unfortunately it didn’t happen due to a mistake in the lap. On the first lap of the race I had a very good start, and tried attacking Jajovski, but he had the ability to keep the position. Then I got a little touch which damaged my rear wing a little, causing slower lap times and I started dropping places. Energy management was almost perfect! I used my final Attack Mode in the last two laps of the race to try and overtake with the energy I had saved.”
