Pic: what a great race!
28 February 2010 – Charles Pic scored his maiden win in the GP2 Asia series on Saturday as the Frenchman claimed victory in Saturday's sprint race in Bahrain. The Arden driver didn't have a perfect start coming from P4 but managed to work himself up to first place.
Speaking about his first victory in GP2 Charles Pic said: "It was a great race! I started from P4. My start was not really good, but I chose the right trajectory coming into Turn 1, so I gained some positions. At the beginning, I tried to push hard and overtake Zaugg, but he was closing all the doors, so it was not easy. And after four laps I was able to overtaking. After that, I was only focused on pushing hard to be able to build a gap between me and Ricci.
"I want to thank the team: they made a great job and my car was fantastic today. For me, it is the first time driving in Bahrain and it was not easy in qualifying. I was still learning the track. We worked a lot for race 1. It was better. And we worked some more before Race 2 and the car improved again a lot. So, great job!"
