First podium for ORT.

"The team has definitely made a lot of progress since the start of the season and, finally, I believe our luck has changed. I am now looking forward to some days off in India and then the rest of the season, starting in Germany."

For ORT co-owners José Guedes and Tiago Monteiro, the Silverstone podium was 'a result that was well deserved - and coming for a while'.

"We always proved that we had what it takes to get good results, and even fight for the win, and this result is a reward for the team's hard work, from the technical team to the drivers," they claimed, "Every member plays an important role in the performance of our cars, and we hope that this result will mark the end of our misfortunes."
