WTCC Morocco: Monterio warns of need for care

Honda's Tiago Monteiro has said any crashes this weekend in Morocco could be doubly costly given the event in France follows straight after.
Tiago Monteiro has said there will be a need to be careful in the WTCC season opener in Morocco this weekend, although he reckons it will be an 'interesting' first test for the new generation cars.

The North African street race is the first of four WTCC rounds that come in quick succession over the next five weeks, with the event at the Paul Ricard Circuit in France following immediately after.

“Because of the busy schedule coming up, we can only hope that our cars don't suffer too much damage in Marrakech,” explained Monterio, who has been competing in the WTCC now since 2007 after failing to make it in F1.

“We have to be very careful not to get involved in any incidents, which isn't easy on the quick street circuit.”

“It will be a very interesting first test against the new cars and new drivers though,” added the Castrol Honda World Touring Car Team man.

“For the Moroccan fans it will also be a fantastic event and the look of the new cars in the FIA WTCC will only add to the excitement already provided by this amazing championship,” he concluded.
