AL1's Bahrain GP Podium Press Conference

Hello there ladies and Gentlemen. Wow, what a race from start to finish with little incidents through but here we are at the end of it and we have the drivers who managed to grab the three top steps, Calspur, Michemery and Misterflash..

Welcome Gentlemen,
We'll start the questions of with you, Calspur...

Q1: Congratulations on your 2nd win in a row, how does it feel to get 2 wins in a row in your debut season?

A1: Any win is special, whether it's separate or in a row.

Q2: As you crossed the line, did you realize you pulled a 37 second gap to Mich and was it a very easy race to carve out that gap?

A2: The 1st stint, Mich and I were evenly matched, but I felt I was a lot more comfortable on Softs and could get a lot more pace in the car. Thinking he must have of had front wing damage due to dropping a second a lap, I felt at ease.

Thank you Claspur, Now we go to you Mich...

Q1: Well done on getting up here in 2nd place but it didn't look like an easy ride with Calspur to start with and then Misterflash later in the race?

A1: It would have been much much closer if I didn't get wing damage on the lap after i pitted. I was losing at least 2 seconds a lap because of the understeer. I was holding Cal back quite comfortably in the first stint and we had very similar pace. I had to pit again for mediums because the understeer was unbearable so I ended up behind about 7 cars and had to battle through. Then i pitted for the Supersofts near the end and had to catch and pass 3 cars including Misterflash. My tyres went of really quickly and I was trying to get past Benn for a few laps and then battled Misterflash on the last lap. It was fun but I didn't enjoy being 2nd.

Q2: Calspur is on fire at the moment with 3 podiums in his debut season, which has now put him 12.5pts clear of you in the drivers championship, do you think you can push him to break his nerves of steel?

A2: Yeah, I can push him. The last 2 tracks are my weakest so I'm glad to get them out of the way. However, Sochi, isn't a good track for me but i still expect it to be very close. Also I feel I was unlucky here today and could have really challenged for the win, but we have, I have to move on now.

Thank you Mich, Now we go to you Misterflash...

Q1: Congratulations on 3rd Place, How does it feel now you've got on the podium with the new cars?

A1: It feels great to be back on the podium, after the difficult races in Australia and China, I was determined to get a good race at Bahrain. I failed to set a good time in qualifying so I could only start P7. In the race, Had an okay start, only lost 1 place and I was picking up some places from teh guys with wing damage. But on Lap 8, I had a small touch with someone in front and it cost me my wing, I did an early pitstop and got out in P13 but the consistency of that 2nd stint brought me back into P4 so I could chase down the leaders for the podium.

Q2: Can you tell us from your point of view on the battle with Mich at the end as it was only 5 1/10th of a sec gap when you guys crossed the finishing line?

A2: When I saw Mich closing down on me, I made the decision to not battle him 7 laps before the end because he was on fresher and softer tyres and we needed to catch Benn. But after some laps in P4, Mich caught upto the back of Benn but he couldn't pass him, I saw this as an opportunity that while they were battling, I could catch them and safe fuel behind them in the slipstream. I waited for the moment as when they were battling too hard, I could put the car into rich mix and pass them both. But in the end Mich got past Benn as well, and after that, he just needed to pass me on my older tyres. It was a very nice and clean race between us 3.

Thank you Misterflash, Now we'll go back to you Calspur for the last question...

Q3: You've now increased your lead at the top of the drivers' championship to 12.5pts gap to Mich, will you be pushing yourself at Sochi, to keep up these extraordinary podiums you are achieving?

A3: Always gotta push to achieve.


Thank you guys for taking the time to join us here and answer questions, congratulations on the top 3 spots and we'll leave you guys to go and de-brief and enjoy your celebrations, we'll see you on track at Sochi.


Thank You ladies and gentlemen for tuning into our press conference late into the night here at Bahrain, and we'll see you all at the end of the Russian GP.
