„After all the bad luck in Portugal this is really a great start of the weekend on my favorite circuit and one of the hardest in the world. My B3 racing team managed to fix the car after the crashes in Estoril. Again, I didn’t start well and it is something we’ve been constantly working and I’m hoping we will get better at as the season progresses. We were careful this weekend and focused to have the best possible car for qualifying. I know this circuit and I enjoy it’s challenges, but I also know how dangerous it can be. When the driver is the fastest it means he is on the limit and can run out. There were a few incidents today. I am glad that my teammate Attila Tassi is ok after his terrible crash. And I hope I will be even better tomorrow.” – Borkovic said after race 1.
