Exclusive Q&A: James Thompson

Each track gives us valuable information about the car's performance. We had some problems in Slovakia and Hungary when driving at circuits with longer corners, we also had some difficulties with finding a balance, but now the car is better, we've found proper solutions and almost managed to solve our issues.

In Moscow we were really strong – this is the result of all the changes made in the previous months.

Q:
What expectations do you and the team have for the rest of the season?

James Thompson:
We want to be consistently in the top-ten and fight with the front cars in every race but, we also feel strong enough to fight higher in the top-positions.

We are improving, It was obvious at Moscow in race one, where I finished fifth and in race two I was fighting for the rostrum. I was also the fastest in the Sunday morning warm-up session for two consecutive rounds – in Austria and in Russia. That really shows that the car is competitive.

I really feel happy to drive for LADA, I am pleased to be the first Granta driver who scored the points in such a strong championship as WTCC. I would like to be the first one to win a WTCC race at the wheel of LADA. I am sure this is possible in the future.

Q:
How is development going with the car for the new spec regulations?

James Thompson:
I can't give too much away but, we are working on the project and considering how to with the experience that we've gained during this year.
