Yvan Muller did it twice in Monza 2012

Even if the second race was very tough, more tough than what I was suspecting. Great result for me of course and great result for Chevrolet. – Muller

It is Yvan Muller again! The 2011 FIA WTCC Champion has a great start for the 2012 season by winning not one but two of the races. Although Gabriele Tarquini has broke the 13 consecutive pole positions of Chevrolet, it was the blue Chevy again that won the race in 1-2 positions ahead of SEAT Lukoil Racing Team’s Gabriele Tarquini. Alain Menu of Chevrolet Cruze started the race in 4th position but ended in a disappointing eighth place due to the contact of his car with Huff’s car.

In race 2, despite starting from the pole, the BMW 320 TC of Norbert Michelisz ended the race in eighth place. Despite starting from front row, Lukoil SEAT driver Aleksei Dudukalo withdrew from race 2 as the cars went out to the grid.The blue Chevy dominated race 2 with 1-2-3 podium finish. Gabriele Tarquini has been forced out of race 2 due to car accident in lap 2. Huff will be reprimanded for the incident.
