WTCC MACAU, SUNDAY
Fifth for Villa in the Independents Trophy.
Macau, 20th November 2011. Javier Villa finished his first season in the FIA World Touring Car Championship with the fifth position in the Yokohama Trophy and the twelfth overall. Today, at Macau, he was seventh and fifth of the Independents in the two races.

Villa, who had never before raced through the streets of the difficult Macau track, managed to avoid all the incidents in both races, getting to the finish without making any mistakes, something not usual for a newcomer to this track. As opposed to all his rivals that already knew the circuit, Javi went on improving his race pace all the day, scoring his fastest lap at the end of the second race, with the tyres already quite worn out and even improving on his own qualifying time, set with fresh tyres.

The general feeling left by the young Spaniard in his maiden touring car season has been good, pointing up out as one of the future stars of the series in the years to come. Next month will be crucial to decide Javi's immediate future and secure his 2012 program in the championship.

Javier Villa: "I couldn't do anything about fighting for the final podium in the Yokohama Trophy standings as Macau is a track that's so different to the others that. without knowing it, it is totally impossible to battle against people with experience of it. In the second race I finally started to run competitive times and I'm sure that if we were starting again the weekend tomorrow I'd be able to fight for the win among the Independents. Anyway, that final result of the year is good because I have shown that, despite not knowing the tracks, the car and the series, I've made quick progress without making too many mistakes.

Sadly, the end of the season has been not so good, getting involved several times in incidents that weren't of my making and that deprived me of a lot of points, but I feel ready to win next year."
