More points for Moreau
28 May 2008
Guillaume Moreau kept his points tally ticking over with a solid seventh place finish in the third World Series by Renault round of the season at Monaco.
Having scored a podium last time out at Spa-Francorchamps, KTR driver Moreau was hoping his experience competing at Monaco last year, as well as in Formula 3, would aid his cause and help him move further up the point standings.
However, while he qualified an encouraging seventh, treacherous weather conditions around an already tricky circuit meant overtaking was at a premium for the 26-car field.
Unsurprisingly, Moreau settled for the four points that seventh place would bring, even if he was frustrated not to be able to progress up the order.
“It was a real procession. The guys in front of me made no mistakes and everyone played follow-my-leader! My result's bagged me a four more points and helps me to hold onto my sixth place in the championship.”
Team-mate Danill Move, meanwhile, suffered from a crash during qualifying that left him at the back of the grid. With no chance to move further up the field, the Russian was unable to repeat his point scoring antics of the previous round.
"In free practice we had some problems with traffic, we changed the car a lot for the race and it was good enough to be fighting for P3. I made a mistake on the downshift into Tabac and locked the rear wheels.
“In the race I had big problems with the car. It was difficult to keep up with the tempo of the safety car. All I could do was finish and hope that other people would hit trouble in the bad conditions."
