Hopefully, next race in Spa will go along better, the track is completely different and it'll be better to get to grips with this handicap."

Michal Matějovský: "Just a perfect day, first and third places mean a lot for me. Thanks to the points we've notched up today I'm behind Petr, on the second place, which is the aim I've had since the beginning of the weekend. My thanks go to all who have helped me."

Josef Křenek: "Another perfect weekend for us is over. Both drivers were in a fight for victory, so they deserve grateful thanks, so do all team. We've gained a lot of points so reached a good position for next rounds of the championship."
