The 2020 European Champion started his season in the best way by winning both the first races of the KZ2 season!

An incredible success the one of Gustavsson on the track of Adria, the same that last year gave him the first important "brick" for the conquest of the European Championship. With such perfect performances, many people in the paddock are starting to define the Italian circuit as the home track of the Swedish driver.

- Are you surprised to have started the season, again, on a winning note?
«I’m not surprised that we where up in the mix but I’m surprised we got away with two wins in a row. It shows that the work we have done has paid of. I still have a lot of thing I have to improve upon as well as the team. I’m sure we will improve even more during the season so we have only started».



- A lot of people are starting to say that Adria is your track. Do you agree? What is your "secret"?
«Obviously Adria has been good to me, but not for the track itself. Adria is a hard track in the aspect of understanding how tyres, chassi and driving works. To me it’s the hardest track to manage and that’s why we are so good there. I think we have a better understanding of the tyres and chassi than anyone else at the moment and combined with me adapting my  driving style to the track and conditions makes us unstoppable in Adria. There is no secret, it’s only hard work and a combination of great people all playing there part».

- Who will be the opponents of the season according to you?
«It’s hard to say because the field is so close. The KR boys has found some serious speed but to me they don’t have the complete package yet. We just need to keep our head down and keep on working as we have done and we will be fine».
