What they said: Silverstone race three

Sunday 10 June 2018

Tom Gamble, Linus Lundqvist and Kush Maini were the top three drivers in race three at Silverstone. Here's what the lead trio had to say at the end of the weekend's action:

Winner, Tom Gamble:
"I knew it was going to be a case of getting him off the line, that was going to be the easiest way to lead it. I managed that and then it was just a case of putting in consistent fast lap times throughout the whole race, it felt like a qualifying session, just trying to get the quickest laps we could. I could see at the start he [Lundqvist] was coming at me and I had to up my game. In the latter half of the race I was putting in quick lap times and managed to bridge a bit of a gap which was fantastic. 

"A big thanks to everyone at Fortec, they've done a mega job this weekend we came back from our issues yesterday and thanks to them for solving them and the win puts me in good stead for the rest of the season."

Second, Linus Lundqvist:
"It's been a very solid weekend for us. Getting our first qualifying pole of the year felt good and then the race win after that, and then a solid race two and now a second place in race three. A big thank you to my team, especially my engineer Ash and my mechanic Rick who have done a brilliant job this weekend, and we leave here with a bigger championship lead which feels good."

Third, Kush Maini:
"The first race was good for us with promising speed. The second race was tricky, we got a good start but three into one corner doesn't go, but it was a racing incident. We put that behind us and started on pole for race three because of the fastest lap. I didn't get off the line well and then had a bit of a tussle through Maggots and Becketts but we can only take the positives from this weekend, we're still third in the championship with a bit of a margin, but I think we can keep pushing and I'm going to give it my all every race, and that's all I can do."
