Wauters aiming for the podium

19/06/2010 - Zolder
The Belgian singer again showed how at home he feels in the car in the two qualifying sessions.

He finished seventh and third but it is the second placing that maybe reflects Wauters' true potential.

"Coming seventh in the first session is not bad but I could have done better with a different strategy. After two laps I was called back to the pits to check the tyre pressure. It turned out to be okay but once I went back out onto the track I found that the advantage of having new tyres had vanished. So, I pushed hard for a couples of laps, climbed up into fourth and then all I did was try to preserve the tyres for the race so I pulled into the pits. Unfortunately, three drivers beat my time and so I placed seventh.

I wasn't too bothered with the performance as it was my first qualifying session in the car and I am still getting to know it.

I learnt a few lessons from the first session and got more out of the tyres in session 2, managing not to run too many laps. This should mean that I will still have a bit of grip at the end of the race and so be able to go for a podium finish
