Portugal: No luck for Monje in Porto

Fernando Monje endures another tough weekend as the WTCC heads to Portugal
Fernando Monje has had a 2013 FIA WTCC season to forget so far and Porto again looked to back up his feelings of frustration.

The Spaniard, who scored points twice with outings in the same car last year under Tuneti Racing banner, has a best result of eleventh so far this year and feels Porto was the tipping point to briefly speak out about his and Campos racing's lack of luck.

The reigning European champion was relatively happy with P15 in race one but retired with mechanical issues in race two.

"We're not having any luck this season,"said the 20-year-old. "The first race went very well picking up a point in the Yokohama trophy for independents, but the second race we suffered a mechanical failure. I don't know what can we do."

Campos racing have also yet to score a point with other drivers, Hugo Valente and Nikolay Karamishev in their first season of WTCC participation.
