What they said – Paul Ricard, race two

Pommer, Tuscher and Zanella discuss the race after the champagne celebrations

Markus Pommer converted his second pole into his second win with a superb lights-to-flag victory during today's race at Paul Ricard. The 21-year-old German led home Matheo Tuscher, who enjoyed an impressive weekend after his maiden win yesterday, with Christopher Zanella finishing third. Read what the top three drivers had to say after the race…

Markus Pommer

"The win feels really good! Everything went well. The car felt good and so was my start. The tyres were great too and it was a fantastic race. Tuscher was quicker than me on the opening few laps but then I was able to pull out a gap and I just drove really smoothly until the end of the race. It's a great result for my championship and although I don't think I can challenge for P1, hopefully I can now fight for second place."

Mathéo Tuscher

"This has been my best weekend in Formula Two so I'm pretty happy! We didn't have the best race set-up and I thought it would be really difficult to beat Markus. I don't think we had the pace to catch him as he was much quicker than me during the middle of the race. I also had a traction problem but it was still ok in the end and I'm really happy for this weekend and I would like to thank everyone for their support."

Christopher Zanella

"Third place was ok but I got a bad start and lost a position to Mirocha. Halfway through the race I was able to overtake him again but then I got a lot of vibration from the tyre and the car became difficult for me to drive. I think my title shot is over but I will try to give every race my best and we will see at the end of the year. I think it is still possible at the moment but we will see."
