With Victory Engineering heading into their final ever World Series by Renault race, Giedo van der Garde is keen to bring their stint in the championship to a close with a strong result.

The British-based Italian team failed to receive an entry into next year's championship, meaning this will be their last appearance for the time being.

Nonetheless, they are well placed to finish on a high after van der Garde scored a sixth place finish in the first race and will therefore line-up fifth for the second.

It has been an impressive season for van der Garde, the Dutchman's lack of podiums nonetheless giving way to a total of 11 points finishes over 17 races, consistency that has put him sixth in the standings.

It is a podium he wants now though and it is something he believes he can achieve in the final race of the year.

"The start was good, I took two cars by the first corner. The car was very good for the first five laps but then I suffered with massive understeer. After the pit stop the car was better, but all weekend we seemed to have had a problem with the rear tyres and brakes. Today by the end of the race it was quite bad, the rear was always locking.

"I changed the brake balance to the front but it didn't seem to work. We will have to look at a way of improving that before the final race tomorrow.

"It was good to finish P6 and get some good points, but it was quite a boring race overall. We will be looking for a better result tomorrow."
