“The team did a really good job on my car and I am really happy because we were really fast. The race was hard and I managed to use traffic to my advantage to overtake Garcia. I was faster than Gianmarco, so it was a question of time and it finally happened. I am so happy for the team. They invested a lot in building the car this winter and Franck Violas is making great efforts for us. I hope to score another podium tomorrow because every point is important in the title’s hunt.” said the winner.

“It's crazy! I can't believe it! I am really happy; the race went really well. At the beginning I had some pressure from the guys behind, but I was able to manage it. I was a bit disappointed when the race was stopped because I was leading and I lost all my advantage, but on restart I managed to keep the lead in the first turn and I won the race. I'm confident for tomorrow,” said Longin, who will start from the pole tomorrow for the ELITE 2 Race 2.
