Championship dominated by Chevrolet drivers anew

The championship has not reached the half of the season, and yet the fight for the world title seems already limited to a private affair among the three Chevrolet drivers.

Robert Dahlgren qualified first in qualifier 1, followed by Robert Huff and Yvan Muller in third, he finished first for qualifier 2, Robert Huff finished second and Tom Coronel finished third.

Robert Huff won first place in Race 1 followed by Yvan Muller in second and Alain Menu in third. Huff did the best way for him when he checkmated Muller in three moves at the start of today's Race 1. However the reigning champion proved he is not willing to abdicate and recovered from eighth on the grid to victory in Race 2.The gap between them is only 25 points, or a race win.Yvan Muller of Team Chervolet won first place in Race 2. Followed by Tom Coronel of team BMW in second and Alain Menuof of Team Chevrolet in third.

At the present moment Menu looks one step behind his team-mates, not only in terms of points (53 points from Huff). The Swiss racer is paying his standstills in the first races at Monza and Budapest.

Norbert Michelisz is having a bad series. After the drive-through in Budapest for causing the pile-up at the start of the second race and yesterday's exclusion from the qualifying due to underweight, the Hungarian youngster was given another drive-through for pushing Darryl O'Young off today's Race 2.

The championship will resume at Porto, Portugal, on July 3rd for rounds 11 and 12.
