peaking to ITV after the race, Jason commented: “It’s always tough here, and this is the Vauxhall hunting ground. We played it conservative with the tyres, because it is hard here on them.  The game plan for us was to finish strongly.  Second place is a lot of points; it’s a good start to our campaign.”
