The penultimate lap saw him seize the lead, which he was to hold until the flag."I almost crashed with Imperatori in the first corner I almost crashed with Stefan in the second corner. I don't know how I ended up fourth as they were so much faster than me on the straights." said Mortara. "When Engel hit the wall then we were on the podium. Afterwards it was just a question of staying cool and focused and to look for opportunities. I had a pretty brave move at Hospital, but I had to try. It went right. I made a lucky, lucky, lucky move. One last lap, Danny was pushing very hard. I had to risk everything on that last corner at Mandarin.""When people say it's easy for me to win here, I think today you see how difficult it is. This is probably the nicest victory I have had here and one I will never, ever forget," added Mortara.As the only man to win the Macao Grand Prix twice having achieved back-to-back victories in 2009 and 2010, Mortara added the Audi R8 LMS Cup to his collection last week, which was his fifth on the Guia street circuit.
