Kiss122Imola was certainly not worth a trip for the Austrian outfit

It was a weekend to forget with the Austrian outfit, as team leader Tamas Pal Kiss had troubles at his pitstops in both races and scored minimal points. Coming a distant ninth in either race, the Hungarian slipped from third to fourth in the overall points standings.

His Swiss teammate Christof von Grunigen didn’t get along with both the track and the car as he did at his debut in Monza and placed seventh twice. Starting from front row, von Grünigen’s rpms dropped too far and he was passed by the field. Later in the race, he misinterpreted on-board radio and came into the pits early.

“We were all baffled, when he suddenly turned up in the pits. Considering, his tyre change was flawless. Regardless, this has been our worst weekend so far, so I am glad it’s over. The pace was there, as Tamas was the second-fastest man on the track Sunday, but at that stage, he was too far behind”, team boss Michael Zele said, who is now looking forward to the team’s home race on the Red Bull Ring on July 19/20.

“Naturally, we know the Red Bull Ring really well and we are ready to fight back.”
