Gianni Morbidelli (Audi) celebrates 2013 SUPERSTARS INTERNATIONAL SERIES title at Vallelunga


24 Oktober 2013

Newly-crowned Gianni Morbidelli shares thoughts on taking 2013 title at Vallelunga.
Gianni Morbidelli completed a sensational run at Vallelunga. The Italian scored six wins, one pole position, two second and two third place finishes in 2013 en-route to be crowned 2013 SUPERSTARS INTERNATIONAL SERIES champion. Driving for Audi, he confirmed his winning status in the V8-based competition. In addition to that, he is standing in second place in the Italian Championship, just four points away from Vitantonio Liuzzi (Mercedes). In less than two weeks, the two will fight their way again for the national crown, as the series is lining up on the 26th and 27th of October at Franciacorta.
As he's still celebrating his fifth SUPERSTARS title, Gianni Morbidelli stopped by to share some thoughts over the outcome of the 2013 season's decider.
"We were off to a difficult start. At Brno and Slovakia Ring we ended up with two retirements and that enabled my rivals at Mercedes to score lots of points and gain a considerable margin. Definitely it's been the toughest moment for our team, but we kept each other motivated also thanks to the car's potential. So we eventually scored several straight wins and lined-up at Imola tied with Thomas Biagi at the top of the standings. We had one of the most spectacular duels of the season there and I managed to get the nod. Coming to the last round of the season with a 33-point advantage played in my favour, and I had the chance to administrate it with a third-place finish in Race 1. That eventually handed me the championship with one race to go"
