Another Top 20 for Positive SimRacing in the 9th round of World Championship GP Series, thanks to a great driving from Diogo Oliveira. Diogo was one of the drivers that drove closer to the walls, and that gave him some extra pace over his competitors. Diogo made a good qualifying, starting in P19, but he didn't assume risks on a very dangerous first lap, and he lost 6 positions. During the next laps he found a lot of traffic and overtaking was almost impossible. Nevertheless, the strategy helped him to reach P16 in lap 34 (when he made the pit stop) and finally he managed to finish in P19. Diogo and the team expect to keep improving for the next races, although the circuit Gilles Villeneuve was a good opportunity to show the Diogo's talent and the capability of the team to work around a setup giving confidence to Diogo.
