"I then came back in 2007 to partner Thomas Biagi for Vitaphone at Silverstone; we won that day too. The MC12 was a true track car while the Quattroporte Evo is based on a roadgoing model. Still, it is an excellent drive because of its balance. I am certain we can challenge at Spa as the circuit features some quick curves where balance is crucial and which I really enjoy. I also want to make up for Monza where I had to pull out with a mechanical problem when in second. I have a few ideas about how to improve the Quattroporte Evo’s set up and to even out the tyre wear for the entire duration of the race. I have kept in touch with the Swiss Team technicians even though I haven’t driven in Superstars since Monza and we are weighing up a few options for Spa. We have looked at the feedback from the drivers who have raced the car and come up with some solutions for the upcoming weekend. They are a secret for now...
Cesari: "Driving is better than commentating"
Mauro Cesari: “Finally I am back behind the wheel! I cannot wait to get back into my Quattroporte Evo. All I could do was watch at Hungaroring and that was really tough. Unfortunately, we had a problem with the car in free practice and it couldn’t be fixed in time to take part."
"As I missed out, Rai invited me on as an official commentator. It was a good experience but I would have preferred to have been out on the track because I have more fun in the Quattroporte Evo. I really have to enjoy Spa so that I forget what happened last year when the car I was in (from another manufacturer) caught fire. I suffered a few burns; one on my face. As if that wasn’t bad enough, I whacked my leg on a wall while watching from the pit lane and had to have four stitches put in. Now that is all behind me as I know that Swiss Team have done a superb job on my Quattroporte Evo and it is now 100% ready. I am also pleased that Mika Salo is back as a team mate because he really impressed me at Monza".
