Tiago Monteiro (Honda) hopes to do a "good race" in Slovakia, where the third round of the Touring Car World Cup (WTCR) will take place this weekend to "climb up the ranks".
The Porto driver, who was 'blank' in the previous round in Hungary, already claims to 'know what went wrong' and did not "allow him to extract the full potential of the car in qualifying."
"So it's on our side to reverse this situation for this weekend's race. The Slovakia Ring is a fast and technical circuit, which I like a lot and where I've already won, so we know what we have to do. minimum failure can send us back to the tail of the peloton and we can not allow this to happen again, "said Tiago Monteiro, in statements released by his press office.
The Honda rider focuses mainly on the qualification, because it is mainly at that time that he has to "be 100%".
"The further ahead on the grid, the more chances we have to make good runs. If we already have it in Morocco, I am sure we have all the skills to do it in Slovakia or any other circuit. If we make good qualifications the chances of good races are great and the points will arise to allow us to climb positions in the championship accounts, "concluded the Portuguese.
After two races, each with three races, the Argentine Nestor Girolami (Honda) is the leader of the championship, with 100 points.
Tiago Monteiro is 16th with 20 points.
