Last weekend amidst the glitz and glamour of the Monza race weekend, Paul encountered some engine troubles on lap 7 resulting in an early retirement. Following on from the grid penalty he picked up in qualifying, the mechanical problems capped off a frustrating weekend for Paul who in his own words conceded:
‘if it were not for bad luck, he would have no luck at all this year!’
All roads now lead to Austin, Texas for rounds nine and ten which will be contested on the 21-23 October. With plenty of points still up for grabs, the last weekend of racing could have a dramatic impact on the final rankings for both Paul and the MOMO Megatron team.
As the curtain comes down on what has been an eventful first season for Paul and GWM, all the GWM team will be glued to their TV’s around the world willing him to the strongest possible finish!
