Spare a thought for the Shell V-Power Racing Team who were running in 1-2 with just seven laps to go before suffering tyre issues end ending up 23rd and 16th in the standings.
Anton De Pasquale and Will Davison both gave short sharp quotes after the race with De Pasquale saying “We qualified well for the race and came in early to change over to the soft tyre. We, unfortunately, had the left front tyre delineate had to come in for an additional stop dropping us to P23.”
“We’ll take a look at everything overnight and come back for the final three races stronger.”
Davison in the meantime had this to say “We gave it everything today, unfortunately after qualifying well for race 6 we struggled with tyre life. We’ll look at it overnight and come back tomorrow stronger.”
The team qualified well for the weekend and will be hoping to capitalise on those qualifying results sometime over the remainder of the weekend.
