Tobias Brink unhappy with the contact from Robert Dahlgren in Race 1
Tobias Brink said he felt that he “was treated in a way in which we wouldn’t have treated anyone else” in the first race at Falkenberg, criticising the contact with PWR Racing’s Robert Dahlgren at Turn 2.
The Audi driver, who’s now secured his first victory of the season as a result, said his focus wasn’t on the championship, but on being treated with respect on the track.
“We felt that we were treated in a way in which we wouldn’t have treated anyone else,” said Brink to TouringCarTimes.
“It’s not the way you want to win a race, but I felt that I did a really good start and had good potential to come out P1, but it wasn’t possible after the incident.
“There was a touch from Robert on me, and the first one was OK, but then in corner two, he forces me out of the track, which I didn’t believe was fair racing. You need to leave space, and keep on racing hard, but not push out the other competitor.”
The team went to the officials, who assessed the incident and handed Dahlgren a three-second penalty, which demoted him from first to second.
Dahlgren’s 16-point championship lead is now reduced to just nine, while Brink Motorsport have now moved 19 points clear in the teams’ classification ahead of PWR Racing.
