The oversteer was still there for the third and final race which gave me less confidence for high-speed corner entry and at the mid-point, but a seventh-placed finish, between the other WSR BMWs of Colin Turkington and Rob Collard, landed me a third points-finish of the day, which can’t be sniffed at.
There are two ways of analysing the weekend: you could say that every racing lap I did and point I scored was a bonus after what happened in qualifying, and the effort the WSR boys had to put in. Conversely, there were so many missed opportunities; I really should’ve been further up at the sharp end. In truth, I’m taking the positives from having scored in every race, when it could’ve been so much worse.
We’re into the summer break now, before the second half of the season kicks in at the end of July. The team and I will be doing a lot of work behind the scenes to make sure we come out fighting for the remaining five rounds. That’s 15 more races – at Snetterton, Knockhill, Rockingham, Silverstone and Brands Hatch – to push hard for more wins and move up that championship table.
