Guerrieri goes four it in Pre-season Esports WTCR!
Honda-powered ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport driver Esteban Guerrieri is back in front in the battle to win the Pre-season Esports WTCR Championship.
Guerrieri’s runner-up spot in Race 1 and fourth place in Race 2 at the Slovakia Ring last night means he will take a four-point title lead to a virtual Ningbo International Speedpark this Sunday (5 July).
“My qualifying lap wasn’t great − I locked up into a hairpin and went wide,” said the Argentine ace. “But even though I was not able to capitalise fully on being fastest in the first part of qualifying, it was a strong pair of races and it felt like the maximum from the grid positions; two top fours, one of which was a podium, was still very positive.
“That means we finished this first half of the competition in the lead of the championship, which again is a good result considering I lost some points through no fault of my own in the previous round [at the Hungaroring]. Of course, the aim is to keep this up, but I can only control my performances and these will have to be at the same high standard to remain top.”
