“Another difficult weekend for us”, reflected Sam after the penultimate weekend of the 2012 World Renault by Series Championship.
“Our car was quick in dry conditions but really not good in the wet. To be honest, the podium finish flatters us a little as our package was not competitive but I’m pleased to be able to give the team some small reward for their tireless efforts. Scoring points in both races means that we live to fight another day.”
“For sure, Jules (Bianchi) and Robin (Frijns) are statistically favourites over me to win the title now but statistics will count for little on the day. Anything can happen. I am within striking distance so they can’t afford any slip-ups.
“I know what I need to do in Barcelona and in many ways, my mindset will be easier than theirs. I’m looking forward to it.”
