GP2 Barcelona Quotes

GP2 Series: Congratulations on P3 today: I guess you were looking for more, but are you happy with your weekend?

Tom Dillmann: Yes, I think yesterday we were really quick and had a safe podium but were really unlucky with the engine cover, we lost 14 seconds. But today the track changed a lot, I think because of the rain overnight, and i had a lot of understeer so I couldn't follow the two leaders, but nevertheless I think I did the best job that I could today and this weekend: I couldn't hope for more in my first time with Arden and without testing, so thanks to the team for giving me the opportunity. I'm proud I could pay them back with good results.

GP2 Series: It's tough to come into a new team and do that, so I guess a lot of the race today was protecting what you had from behind?

Tom: I am confident jumping from car to car - I am doing Porsche this year to, which is really different, but I think I know what to do. Today I felt directly that my front wasn't there, so there was no point in pushing and risking my tyres, it was already on the limit. I understood that I had to drive for the podium, I couldn't go better than that, so I'm happy.

GP2 Series: And it was a nice calling card to remind everyone what you can do?

Tom: Yeah, I could not have done it better to just jump in and have a solid weekend and a podium, and I know it can help.
