Quotes from the drivers on the podium in Assen Race 1

Dániel Nagy (winner): "I am really happy, as this is my first international race win. At last! I want to thank the M1RA team that has done a great job and gave me a perfect car. I took a good start and in lap 4, when I saw an opportunity to pass Vernay, I went for it. We had a fair battle and he was very fast, but I could keep the advantage. Now is time to celebrate a bit, but also to start thinking about the championship, because we are in a very good position in the standings."

Jean-Karl Vernay (second): "It's frustrating to lose a win that we should have claimed, but that's racing. Everything went well in the initial laps, but then I was a little bit late at the braking into the first corner and Nagy passed. Given yesterday’s heavy repairs to the chassis, not everything was perfect in the car, especially in brake balance.  I was able to keep side-by-side with him and retake the lead, but then we arrived at turns 3 and 4 and there was gravel all over the tarmac and couldn't keep the line. I am a little annoyed, as the points lost would have been very useful."

Kris Richard (third): "I am quite happy with the result today. The car was good, we had a strong race pace, as always, and that goes to the team's credit. I lost one position at the start, then gained it back at first corner to become fifth. Thanks to the good pace, I could catch and eventually pass the two Honda cars in front of me, and secure a nice podium."
