Mat’o Homola ‘not over the moon’ after completing ‘first part of job’

Mat’o Homola was cautiously pleased with securing yet another pole position in the TCR International Series in Thailand, saying that he still has to ‘complete the second part of the job’ on Sunday.

The Slovakian racer has now put his Opel Astra at the front of the field in qualifying three times this year, adding to his poles in Bahrain and Austria, as well as starting the reverse-grid race in Germany from the front as well.

However the DG Sport Compétition racer has yet to convert any of his poles into a first win in TCR, leaving him cautious about celebrating too much on Saturday in Buriram.

“Thanks [go] to my team,” said Homola. “We had a problem in Q1 and they repaired it quickly to enable me to go through to Q2.

“In Q2 there was a red flag and there was chaos but I managed to do one good lap and it was enough, so I’m really glad for that.

“I like this circuit and the car is behaving how I want it to. Everything is okay and so I’m really happy.”

Homola secured five points for taking pole, but the Opel driver admits that he wants to be able to convert his strong starting position into a maiden win on Sunday.

“I know the biggest part of the points comes in the races, not qualifying, so I’m not really over the moon right now because I know this is just one part of my job and the second comes tomorrow.”
