What they said:
Louis Delétraz: “Everything’s gone really well this weekend. I was on pole yesterday and what happened during the race was my fault. I had to apologise to the team and I tried to do my very best to pull out a big lap. The car was superb, I was on form and that’s what made the difference. It’s up to me to finish the job off now.”
