Well after a crazy weekend, what better way to wrap up than to see what the GP2 and GP3 drivers posted on their Twitters about today’s races? Much more honest than the press-prepared statements. Please note that except for translations, messages are entirely as the drivers have written them.
First race weekend is now finnished. Ended up P7 in race 1, and P2 in race 2. Quite good season start 🙂
@ChristensenMK (Michael Christensen, Mucke, P2)
What a wonderfull weekend!!! P1. for race 1 and race 2 P3. A race which I’ve enjoyed a lot, with a lot of overtaking!
@nigelmelker (Nigel Melker, Mucke, P3)
The race today was a bit of a mess for me, was P2 until 4laps to go and went off alone, stupid mistake cost me the pdoium! [sic]
@a_felixcosta13 (Antonio Felix da Costa, Status, P4)
Had a frustrating race 2. I lost a position at the start but got that back before we completed the first lap and had good pace for the first few laps in 3rd but then the rear tyres went off like a switch and had major issues with oversteer. I finished 7th just out of the points. Overall not a bad first round. Barcelona in a few weeks.
@mitchevans (Mitch Evans, Arden, P7)
had a quite frustrating weekend…missed the needed bit of luck in such a competitive field. Barcelona will be a different story! 😉
@nico_mueller (Nico Mueller, Jenzer, P15)

@imstockinger (Marlon Stockinger, Atech, P23)
Almost entire floor of my car was ripped off when I was knocked off on lap 2. Hard to go fast when that happens.. Onto barcelona!

@stefanocoletti (Stefano Coletti, Trident, P1)
Great weekend in the end. Maybe next time I should start a bit higher on the grid but with a 2nd place in race 2 I must be happy!

Happy of today race despite the collision with Jules. Good pace and crazy comeback to catch the point of the best lap.
@RGrosjean (Romain Grosjean, DAMS, P10)
Hi all, our race today was a disaster. We did a wrong decision on the setup and the car kill completely the tires,nothing left.
@luizrazia (Luiz Razia, AirAsia, P18)
Just arrived at the airport hotel, today was catastrofal, had good racing but after mid race the tyers were completly dead! its a nightmare!
@varhaug (Pal Varhaug, DAMS, P21)
Pity about the penalty, it was a great start and we had a very competitive race pace. I’m happy for the team’s victory today.
