Kjaergaard: "You never know what could happen in the championship"

Saturday 22 September 2018

Donington race one winner Nicolai Kjaergaard believes the championship fight between him and Linus Lundqvist may be back on, after he took his fourth win of the season, with Lundqvist only eighth.

The gap between the two heading into the weekend was 111 points, but that was slashed to 89 after Kjaergaard's win, with the Dane now in fighting mood.

"We took a lot of points out of Linus and things look better for me now," he commented. "I think if we keep doing that and keep trying to get wins and then see what he does, and if we reel any more points in, you never know what could happen!"

His win came courtesy of a good start off the line, passing pole sitter Billy Monger on the run to Redgate, and then held off a strong charge from fellow Carlin driver Jamie Caroline to triumph by 0.7 seconds.

"I think the most important thing was to get a good start off the line, and then after that it was more about managing the drying track and trying to keep Caroline behind me who was very fast. We broke away from everyone else so it was just about trying to keep him behind, and I managed to do that." 

Kjaergaard will now start towards the back of the grid for the second contest tomorrow morning, and he's hopeful of another strong showing.

"It depends if it is wet, we should be able to get up quite far, if it's dry it will be more difficult to overtake. If it's wet then I can aim to be inside the top seven or even the top five, if its dry we're looking more at the top-10."
