Mato after qualifying: "Hello Slovakia! In qualifying session at SPA I've finished on great second place with lap time 2:34.741, which was so far my best lap time here at Spa. I did 5 fast laps and the last one was the fastest. I tried to push more, but that lead only to a few mistakes.
Tomorrow we start from the first row, and I believe it will be a win race for us. I'm so excited. In the morning we start with warm-up and later on at 4:05 PM we have 2 races. Keep the fingers crossed!"

Mato: "I am extremelyexcited about winning both races today!! After the poleposition in the 1st race I was careful, as I had slick tires and the track was wet. I lost 2 positions, but due to the mistake of the drivers in front of me I took my 1st position back. Afterwards I lead the race till the end.
In the second race, TOP 8 drivers switched the positions and we had a standing race. In the first lap I made it to 3rd position and after the difficult battle with Michal Grachev and Peter Fulin I took the 1st positions and won also the 2nd race!!
At the podium, they played Slovak national anthem, what was an awesome feeling and I would like to thank all my fans, family, teams and partners for the support!"
