Jeffrey Schmidt, Winner:
"There have been a few times this season when I've only just missed out on the top spot, but today I finally did it. I got off to a great start and worked hard from very early on to overtake whoever was ahead. The setup for my car was perfect today, enabling me to move up from sixth on the grid to the top rung of the podium. I'm truly grateful to my crew. I know that I have the necessary speed, and I fully intend to prove this in the final six races of the season."
