"We decided to skip Brazil for budget reasons"

The Zengö Motorsport team have shipped only Norbert Michelisz’s car to Brazil. Therefore Gábor Wéber will not take part in the races at Curitiba.

“Entering a second car has been a huge achievement and a great opportunity for the team. We knew from the start that funding Wéber’s overseas races was problematic. We managed to buy the car at the last moment, which didn’t make things easier. Wéber has been through a difficult period as he had to adapt to WTCC without any testing. I hope he may rejoin soon,” team manager György Juni explained.

Wéber who managed to score championship points at the Slovakia Ring and Hungaroring commented: “We decided to skip Brazil for budget reasons. We need new sponsors and we are still working on that. It has been a valuable experience, especially adjusting myself to rear-wheel drive after years of racing front-wheel drive cars. Motor sport at this level is not forgiving; I made a few mistakes, had some bad luck, but all in all I felt getting better with every weekend and being seventh in qualifying at Portimão was a good way to finish the European season. My plan is to continue in WTCC, maybe even this year, but the main goal is to race a full campaign in 2013.”
