Alexandr Artemyev celebrated his maiden FIA European Touring Car Cup podium by revealing his desire to race on in the series.

The Kazakhstan driver was making his annual ETCC appearance at the Hungaroring. And after getting over the disappointment of being stripped of his pole position for a weight check penalty infringement, Artemyev drove his Baporo Motorsport SEAT to a strong second place in Race 2.

“I want to drive, I want to race and I like racing for sure, but it depends on the budget,” said Artemyev. “But I will do my best to be in this championship, there are very fast drivers here, everything is good, I hope we’ll be here.”

Of his penalty in qualifying, Artemyev said: “When I got the penalty I was disappointed and decided to focus mostly on Race 2. Otherwise it would be hard to fight with all the fast cars for the podium. We took our sixth position and I decided to keep this position to have a clean race and after we finished P6 it would be good enough for the second race. Then I found out I would get again a penalty and would move to P10. I was very disappointed and I didn’t know what to do. I said okay, I will try and drive as fast as possible and don’t do any crashes and I’ve had enough penalties already. I decided to be fast but not around limits. Still, it was good enough. Of course I’m really happy for second, it was a good fight in our last lap for first position.”
