Unfinished business for Guerrieri.

Although he wasn't quite able to do it for Ultimate Motorsport in Formula 3, Esteban Guerrieri has given himself a great chance to break the team's World Series by Renault duck at Silverstone after qualifying a superb third.

His first time in the car this weekend having graduated from Formula 3, Guerrieri has spent the weekend gradually ascending the timesheets and, having squeezed into Superpole, managed to put together a final flying lap that would place him second on the grid.

The best ever starting position for the rookie outfit Ultimate Signature too, Guerrieri admits he was a little surprised to be up at the front so quickly after only getting the chance to experience the car on new tyres in qualifying.

“I was really pleased to get into Superpole because today was my first run on new tyres,” the smiling Argentine told Crash.net Radio. “Because I managed to make it through, we were able to make the right adjustments to the car and it definitely improved. So I relaxed and I was able to put together a really good lap.

“It is always a process to make the right steps and not to make any mistakes, which is what I have been trying to do and I have been getting good references from my team-mate too, so I was feeling confident for Superpole.”

On the same day that former F3 team-mate Michael Devaney scored Ultimate's maiden pole position at Snetterton, Guerrieri is now hoping to possibly break the team's victory duck this weekend on his debut. If not, he is at least targeting two good finishes.

“My goals are short,” he added. “Yesterday, my goal was to get into Superpole, which I have done, so I am feeling more confident with the car. We still need to do some adjustments and then go for it, although my aim is still to finish the races. The pace is there, so if the podium comes then even better.”
