Rob Huff hails team effort for race two victory

Rob Huff credits team's 'amazing job' to take emotional first victory for Munnich Motorsport.
Reigning champion Rob Huff took an emotional victory in the second race of the fourth round of the 2013 World Touring Car Championship at the Hungaroring, notching up not only his first race win for SEAT, but also Munnich Motorsport's first at only their fourth meeting in the series.

The former factory Chevrolet driver, who took a very solid fourth in race one, was running second whilst the safety car was deployed to clean up crash damage at turn two, he then explained how his race panned out and thanked his team, who did an 'amazing job.'

"I am almost as happy today as when I won the championship in Macau last year!" exclaimed the 34-year old, "I have to thanks the team, because they did an amazing job. They had no experience in touring cars and we don't have the fastest car in the field.

"I knew that, in certain circumstances, we could have been competitive for a podium and possible a win. I think that finishing fourth and first today was amazing.

"Overtaking [Mehdi] Bennani after the safety car pulled off into the pits was a 'now or never' move. I had a close first race with Tom Coronel and I knew that the SEAT and BMW cars are even in speed, but the BMW was more consistent towards the end of the race."

Huff's excellent weekend propels him to third in the standings, as top SEAT, but, with only 20 points separating Huff from Norbert Michelisz in tenth, it will be interesting to see how the standings will look after the Salzburgring in two weeks' time.
