Giovanni Bellarosa (Wolf Racing Cars, General Manager):
“We showed once again the great adaptability of our car: after a few laps it provided the right confidence to drivers which allowed themselves to push hard to get the pole position. Guglielmo and Ivan did a great job. Starting ahead of the others is important even if the race is long. Strategy and race management are going to be crucial, but we are motivated and aware of having a very competitive package”.
