On his return to the Euroformula Open with DAV Racing, Mexico´s driver was left at the gates of the podium at the Autódromo do Algarve
Gerardo Nieto had a positive debut in the Euroformula Open this season. “Grillo”, debuting with a Dallara F312 entered by DAV Racing after taking part in the Cup class last year, finished 8th in race one and then, in race two, came in 4th, almost on the podium.
In that regard, he commented that “I´m absolutely delighted, really enthusiastic as my team DAV Racing, my engineer Stefano Alessi and almost everyone around me worked hard to achieve this result. The new car has so much potential but I think we need to keep improving our understanding of the Dallara F312. Stefano has done a remarkable job and we worked together really well, always improving. I am really learning from him. We are on the right path. I know how strong we will be from now on and we have a competitive car to win races. I feel I have grown up. I feel more confident and with a different mentality and physical shape.
