Vršecký in the Lead of the Championship!!!
What only the greatest optimists believed in after yesterday ´s opening cup race has become the reality this afternoon! David Vršecký ranked second in the handicap race and after a failure of Albacete grasped the first ranking for the first time this season.
David has scored the same number of points as Albacete, but the number of cup race victories is currently 13:10 in favour of the acting European champion. "Markus yesterday said something in the sense that in the case of Antonio the good luck would not last forever. What a pity the championship has not ended today," said David immediately after the race. "Yesterday before the handicap race I felt like throwing the towel in the ring, and suddenly I am in the lead. I have chosen a beautiful sport." Even before the start of the final cup race David together with the whole team could already celebrate winning the third Constructors´ Cup in a row. The tactics before the handicap race was clear – to drive at one ´s best. “I thought Antonio would plunge in head first and so I started calmly,” explained David the opening of the race, where he held the seventh ranking for the whole two laps. "Antonio was riding in front of me and so I accelerated and watched his worries. After his giving up I found myself on the third position and began to count the points." While the leading Hahn clearly drove to win, to overtake the second Allgauer was not insurmountable for our trucker. "However, I received information not to rush anywhere. Egon is a rather unpredictable driver and in addition he left the track in one section,” explained David his rather passive tactics of the final section of the race after the finish. “Eventually the boys were right, Egon was penalised with two seconds and I am the winner after all! Wonderful!" Markus Bösiger eventually ranked seventh. "My congratulations to David, he has performed really excellently this weekend. I firmly believe we will also celebrate after the Jarama."
