Esteban Guerrieri has spoken about his WTCR Race of Hungary struggles and how he plans to get back on top form in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup.

Carrying 40 kilograms of compensation weight in his Honda Civic Type R TCR, Guerrieri placed ninth and P10 in the two Hungaroring counters and slipped from third to fifth in the provisional standings as a result.

Speaking afterwards, the ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport driver, whose 10 WTCR wins is a record for the series, said: “We were not that competitive in Race 1, and struggled quite a bit with the heat and a balance issue. For Race 2, we opted for a redirection to try to balance the car a bit better, but actually it went the opposite way. I wasn’t really in control of the pace of the car – if I put more in I ended up understeering too much. I was that slow that there was little sense in fighting the others, because I might have got involved in a crash or something and it was important to finish the race.

“I couldn’t capitalise and score the amount of points I really wanted to, it was not great, but at least we got that information from today. We’ll keep fighting.”
