Linus Lundqvist clinched his fourth win of the year in Silverstone race one, with Kush Maini a close second and Jordan Cane third. Here's what the top-three said after the race:

Winner, Linus Lundqvist:
"It was extremely tough, Kush was especially quick from the middle of the race and particularly at the end. I have to say a big thanks to my team, the guys at Double R have done a great job so far this weekend, the car has been mega all the way through.

"I kept pushing away, trying to do my job and converted the pole into a win, it's the best way possible to start the weekend. 

"I saw Kush had a try and we were side by side for a few corners. The track is wide and in tomorrow's race it should offer some overtaking possibilities for me. I'm going to be with all the quick guys at the back in race two, so it will be tough but I'm looking forward to it."

Second, Kush Maini:
"A massive thanks to Lanan Racing, they gave me such a good car today and definitely a car I could have won with. We finished second, which is not what we wanted.

"I definitely felt like I was quicker but through Maggots and Becketts it was really hard to follow so I had to give him a gap so I could attack into the last sector, but he had me covered." 

Third, Jordan Cane:
"The main focus was the start and we all seemed to bog down because of the grip, and it was really hot. If I'd had a better start I could have got Maini as well but then I was focussing on staying with Linus and Kush as I saw Maini was on a full set of new tyres while Linus was on two, same as me. We set the second fastest lap time while I was running in clear air and it was a good race, a big thanks to Douglas Motorsport for giving me a strong car and it puts us in a good position for tomorrow. 

"I was close enough to them where if they scrapped a bit more on the last lap maybe I could have popped a move, but I had a big gap behind me and I was hoping they'd fight a bit more but it is what it is, and I go home with another trophy."
