A1 Team Pakistan driver, Adam Khan was deprived of a points finish in the feature race at Dubai Sunday, after a collision with A1 Team Austria's Mathias Lauda.

Khan, who was lying in eighth position with just four laps to go before the two cars collided, was however pleased that he had managed to break into the top ten, especially after only qualifying a lowly 20th.

"It had been going fantastically well up to the collision with Austria," said Khan. "The set up of the car was great and I had consistently overtaken cars in front of me and made my way through traffic to bring Pakistan into the top ten for the first time since Brands Hatch.

"However, I have again proved that we can match the pace of the front runners and be at the front of the racing.

"I would also like to thank all the Pakistani supporters who were showing great encouragement throughout the race and the many who thanked me personally for my efforts for the team."

Asim Husain, operations director of A1 Team Pakistan added: "We thank the team for the huge effort that they gave this weekend. We should also congratulate Adam on his superb driving as he took the car into the top ten during the race. Pakistani fans were certainly delivered a thrilling race and the enjoyable sight of A1 Team Pakistan gaining ground all the time and showing the nation that we are serious contenders in this Grand Prix of Nations. We hope to improve on our pace and we hope that the race in Indonesia in the New Year will bring us better results."
