“I am very disappointed. I had a perfect start, I was focused and utilized my Hyundai to it’s maximum considering that we were the heaviest by far. When I saw the safety car on the track I knew it was going to be tough considering the weight and how slow we were on these long straights. Briche passed me at the end of the long straight and J. Clairet hit me from behind at around 250km/h and sent me off the track. I have nothing to say, you saw it all. Very unsafe and unsportsmanlike driving from him and many others. I was lucky that I didn’t flip or got hit from by other drivers. If i had finished the race, i would have a chance at the top of the championship ladder. With this kind of driving standards and penalty that i had in Hockenheim, I am not sure that I have a standing chance. I will of course give my best and I want to thank all my sponsors, my team and fans for all their support”, said Borkovic.
Next two races of TCR Europe will be held in Austria at Redbull Ring July 13/14th.
