Russia 2013: Michel Nykjaer takes race two win in Moscow

The LADA squad had a race two to forget: James Thompson found himself involved in a racing incident whilst battling for third and retired on lap 4; while his team mate Mikhail Kozlovskiy pulled into the pits with technical issues on lap 7.

With Muller finishing in second, his lead over Tarquini in the 2013 WTCC standings is now a formidable 113 points. Tarquini is also now at risk of falling prey to Michael Nykjaer, whose race two win moved him up to third place in the standings ahead of James Nash and only six points adrift of overhauling the veteran Italian.

Tarquini will be determined to hold off that threat while doing everything he can to reduce the gap to Muller at the next WTCC event of the season at Portimao in Portugal on June 30, after which a five-week long summer hiatus awaits.
