JEV back in the points

After a perfect race on the selective track of Spa-Francorchamps, Jean-Eric Vergne finished the Belgian Grand Prix in eighth position. The Frenchman, after a spectacular end of the race with many overtaking, is back to the points after the summer break.

“I am really happy after what was a fantastic race” said Jean-Eric. “I had hoped to come here and score points on my favourite track and I managed it.  I had a very good car and I was able to do some good overtaking moves. It was a shame I lost a lot of time behind Rosberg, but I’m not complaining on a day when I finally scored some points again.”

“I did not get a very good start, as I just touched the anti-stall. That meant quite a few cars passed me and that’s when I saw there was a crash. I braked and took a line as near to the inside as possible and I came out of it without too much trouble.”

“I enjoyed myself today and I think we are on the right track although it’s hard to say exactly what was better about our car this weekend. We will analyse everything that happened this afternoon with the intention of being even stronger in Monza next weekend.”

“The team worked well and the pit stops were good so well done to them too and it’s great that Daniel also scored points. I will leave Spa with a good souvenir of this weekend.”

Next race is already next weekend, at the fast and incredible Monza track.
