Renaud Kuppens: "It was crucial to finish the Shanghai weekend with a solid performance to leave me with a healthy lead going into the last round in Abu Dhabi. Perhaps I could have collected a few more points yesterday but I opted not to take any risks and limit the pit lane handicap. The plan worked out well and allowed me to take this second place. The only disappointment is that this is the only round this season in which I haven't won a race".
Mikkel Mac: "I was battling to finish on the podium and I managed it. It was a great race and certainly conditioned by the extra time spent in the pits. In my case, after an extra 20 seconds spent in the pit lane, I tried to chase down Calamia and caught him with three laps to go. I had a brake problem but really wanted to finish third. I would like to thank the race officials for how they used the blue flags to supervise the overtaking of lapped drivers. Now there is only one round left to decide winner of the championship. I need to collect lots of points and Kuppens needs to really go through a spell of bad luck... Anything can happen in races so I'll take it a race at a time. In any case, I gave it my best shot this year".
