Tiago Monteiro prepared for Brazil

Tiago Monteiro is ready for the resumption of the 2012 World Touring Car Championship after a seven week break since the last race, which took place at the Portimao circuit in Portugal.

Curitiba in Brazil plays host to rounds 15 and 16 of the 2012 campaign and for Monteiro, he can’t wait to get back behind the wheel of the SEAT Tuenti Racing Team SunRed SR Leon 1.6T.

He is retaining his optimism for the weekend despite the uncertainty over the weather; the race weekend has been moved from the Brazilian summer to the start of the winter.

“It’s good to return to competition after such a long break,” explained the Portuguese driver.

“Even though I like the layout of this fast, technical circuit which might not be enough to achieve our objectives. It may be cold in Curitiba and in this case it would be beneficial to us because our tyres wouldn’t overheat. I am motivated and I have every confidence in the team’s work.”

Monteiro is looking to score more points for his Championship total and that of his team – he arrives in Brazil ninth overall with 45 Championship points.

“I want to do the best I can, and that involves a good spot on the starting grid. This is always a difficult task, but the possibility of securing points depends on it. I am convinced we can do it,” concluded the former Formula 1 racer.
