Roy Nissany had a bitter afternoon, as he was hit from behind hard by one of his contenders, and then pushed into the barriers.

Roy Nissany – Q2 P2 1:59.761 –
“The race started well, I was in P2 and I was keeping the pace. I pitted at the right moment, when the safety-car came in again. I was respecting the rules, proceeding slowly when I got a massive hit in the back from another guy. I don’t know what he had in mind, but it was definitely an uncautious move. I went straight to the wall due to the great force of the impact. Luckily we are ok but it was not pleasant at all“.
