WEC F.Renault Caldarelli takes podium finish at Spa-Francorchamps

07-10-2008

Andrea Caldarelli faced tough weekend at Spa-Francorchamps,
in an attempt to reverse the difficult Portuguese experience
suffered at Estoril. The Italian found much more confidence in
the Belgian round of the Formula Renault West European Cup (WEC),
as well as a really competitive and reliable racecar, clinching two
podium finishes despite the bad weather and temperature condition
in all the three days. The TDP (Toyota Driver Program) pilot kept control
on Race 1, staying at the top all-day long and trailing team-mate
Daniel Ricciardo until the final corner. Tire temperature was a constant
issue, and Andrea managed to avoid mistakes on Race 2 and too once
again third spot, adding another trophy to his successful 2008 season.
Daniel Ricciardo is currently the standing leader with 148 points, followed
by Mehri (135), Caldarelli (79), Vergne (68) and Vautier (55).
