and had a week­end of mixed emo­tions in Hun­gary.

On Sat­ur­day, the # 488 Fer­rari team was on a dream rac­ing. After Mac won the pole for the first race, Fer­rari took the lead and built a sig­nif­i­cant advan­tage for a more than deserved win. How­ev­er, five min­utes from the end of the race, with at the wheel, a dis­grun­tled atti­tude of John­ny Mowlem who clos­es the door to the Fer­rari, leads the Por­tuguese dri­ver to make a top and lose two posi­tions.

Despite Ramos’ effort, it was not pos­si­ble to go fur­ther than the third place and although the British dri­ver was penal­ized, there was noth­ing to do about the final result. and lost the sec­ond vic­to­ry of the sea­son and the dis­plea­sure of the pilots was very vis­i­ble in the cer­e­mo­ny of the podi­um.

It’s one of the worst sen­sa­tions to lose like that. We had the race per­fect­ly con­trolled, we were man­ag­ing the lead, but with­out facil­i­tat­ing any­thing, as our times around prove our con­cen­tra­tion well and we had the right pace. The worst thing is the work of so many peo­ple in our team who were thus spoiled in a per­fect­ly avoid­able sit­u­a­tion. He saw the blue flags, he real­ized how fast I was approach­ing, I was not strug­gling with any­one, I do not under­stand how he closed the door like that. The Mowlem was penal­ized, but our race was ruined. ” said at the end of the race.

In the sec­ond race, Ramos came out of the fourth posi­tion on the grid, but felt some dif­fi­cul­ty in putting the tires at the ide­al tem­per­a­ture, suf­fer­ing some pres­sure from the Lam­borgh­i­ni from Bia­gi. “The first 3 laps had some dif­fi­cul­ties, but when the tem­per­a­ture sta­bi­lized and felt” grip “, I was able to get into a good rhythm and I moved away from Bia­gi, enter­ing the fight for 4th place again.”

At the time of the driver’s change, the team had to ful­fill a hand­i­cap of 5 sec­onds and the Fer­rari # 488 fell to 7th. It was then that a with “the knife in the teeth” took to the track and car­ried out a spec­tac­u­lar recov­ery until the sec­ond place in which fin­ished the race.

was a much more smil­ing man in this sec­ond podi­um. The fan­tas­tic per­for­mance of the whole team and the extrater­res­tri­al stint of Mik­ka took the Fer­rari to the lead­er­ship of the , when was fin­ished the first half of the cham­pi­onship.

It was a fan­tas­tic turn what Mik­ka did. It struck hard­core through­out the stint and the best sig­nal is the fastest lap got to an end turn. It was a shame we were both stuck in both stints, and this way BMW got a good lead, oth­er­wise we would fight in the end. In the end of the day there are the two podi­um ris­es, but above all we showed that they can count on us in the fight for the title. ”

António Coim­bra and Luís Sil­va also had an excel­lent sec­ond race at the Hun­garor­ing.

The Por­tuguese duo of the # 99, won the class AM and got the sec­ond place in the cham­pi­onship, in the class.

The # 99 team has had a fair­ly reg­u­lar cham­pi­onship, scor­ing in all races and fin­ish­ing four races in fourth place in the class, three in sec­ond and the lat­ter in first.
