It was a day to forget at Silverstone for American driver Juan Manuel Correa. Faced with a difficult race one that yielded a lot of misfortunes, the Sauber Junior Team driver is ready to attack on Sunday during race two.
Having to overcome a poor start that snowballed into contact on lap one, Correa ended his first wheel-to-wheel action of the weekend in thirteenth.
“It was a very tough race one here at Silverstone,” explained Correa.
“Everything that could have went wrong, did go wrong. I had a very poor start, then contact on lap one and then a bad pit stop. After all of that, we did not have good enough pace to make passes. Obviously Silverstone is a very difficult track to overtake on and we just did not have overall speed. We will sit down and analyze and it will be a very long night and figure out what we can improve. "
"I am sure we can make some big changes for tomorrow and even though the weekend has not gone very well, hopefully we can end it on a high tomorrow.”
Due to a post race penalty to a fellow competitor, Correa will now begin Sunday’s wheel-to-wheel action from P12.
Race two of the weekend will get underway at 10:00 (GMT +1) or 5:00am (GMT-4) in the United States.
