"I felt positive right away and I thought we might do well from free practice on. I did everything I could on the last lap and picked up a little towards the end. I drove on the limit and managed to nick it right at the end".
Giorgio Sernagiotto: "My Maserati experience has begun with a pole position and this can only be positive. I was surprised by the car as I thought it would be hard to drive given its weight. In reality it went well and the car was well balanced. I am also pleased with our pace as it was just a touch off the Spanish GT times. I really like the circuit. Overall, I have only positive feelings but this is just the first race and it will be a real challenge because the competition is tough. Tomorrow it should be a great race. We will have to keep an eye on the tyre wear. It will be a scrap if it rains so I hope it stays dry".
