OLE!!! Felicitaciones Oriol, First Win

The Catalonian Champ Car driver, pinch-hitting for the injured Bruno Junquiera in Newman Haas Racing, finally got that elusive first win at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal on Sunday. Oriol started second and fell to third, but after a restart he made a banzai move on Justin Wilson and took second. He then proceeded to run down German driver Timo Glock who made two blocking moves to hold off the hard-charging Spaniard. The race stewarts penalized Glock for the second move, and gave Oriol the position for the win.
Oriol is one of the nicest guys in the paddock, and deserves this win, not only for his persistence, but also for the sheer agression he showed on the track Sunday. Read the whole story, here, here, and here.
