Junqueira admits to losing it after penalty.

“You know, I think you always want to win, but today Tracy was strong. I think I was strong as well. But in the end, I think track position makes a difference -- who is in the front is going to win. After I have to let him by, I just fell off a little bit. I think halfway through the race, I got my focus back. I mean, when I let Tracy pass, it was like five or six laps before the pit stop. I just felt down. I lost the concentration, let him go by, take off from me. It was a strange feeling, I tell you. It was really strange. I hope that doesn't happen anymore."
