More points but more improvement needed as Team Mulsanne continues WTCR bid
Team Mulsanne scored more points in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO in Hungary last weekend – but returned to its native Italy with the aim of finding further improvement.
Ma Qing Hua’s P11 in Race 2 was as good as it would get for the race-winning squad.
Michela Cerruti, Operations Manager at Romeo Ferraris, the outfit behind the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce TCR, said: “In a championship like this there is no space for the smallest mistake. I can’t remember, since I am in motorsport, first as a driver and then in a managerial role, a situation where gaps are so close. Within one second, you basically have 20 cars and any slightest error costs you a lot.
“The car, in its 2019 spec, has clearly improved significantly, although the toll we have to pay because of the 50 kilograms of additional weight we carry with respect to rivals, is evident on tracks such as the Hungaroring.
“Both Kevin and Qing Hua had some bad luck, but in Race 2 we opted for differentiated strategies, and were able to bring home some points. We should be more competitive in Slovakia, and we will continue to work hard to improve in all areas.”
