Race winner Smidl drove in one of the high-tech cockpits in the German lounge, which is located in Munich’s Motorworld. “It’s really nice here,” said the Czech in the winner’s interview. “My race was good, I was able to get a good lead straight away and manage it to the end.”

However, Smidl benefited from a collision between the two Spaniards Alejandro Sanchez and Coque Lopez. Sanchez, who was leading the championship before the race, was pushed out by Lopez in turn one. “Sanchez didn’t deserve this. Before that, I had contact with Smidl, which is why my tires locked when braking and we collided, ”explains Lopez.
