More points for Van der Garde
10 May 2009 – After starting from P2 in this morning's sprint race, hopes were high for another handful of points and iSport rookie Giedo van der Garde did not fail to deliver. After dropping a couple of places at the start after being pushed onto the grass, van der Garde drove to P4 to take 3 more points to add to his tally this weekend.
Giedo van der Garde: "I finished 4th. I got pushed on the start because Kobayashi pushed me on the grass because I had a much better start then two guys passed me because I had to brake quite early for the first corner. I was 3rd but by lap 3 I was 4th because Grosjean passed me. Then the rest of the race I stayed with them at the beginning as I was consistent and quick but then the middle of the race I dropped off because the rear tyres went off. So more points we are now 5th or 6th in the championship so I'm quite pleased and hopefully next race will be good".
