WTCC: Rob Huff and José María López come out on top in Macau

From press release

Rob Huff and José María López each won a race, this week-end as part of the World Touring Car Championship's (WTCC) annual visit to Macau.

Huff claimed his 7th win from 20 starts at the Guia circuit, and his second win this season driving for Lada. His former teammate Yvan Muller tried everything but couldn't find a way through.

"It was a difficult race, because of the constant pressure from my old friend Yvan (Muller), but I know him well and I was able to close door every time," commented Huff.

Hugo Valente recovered well after a poor start from pole to take third place, his third podium of the year.

Earlier, López scored a record-breaking 10th win this the season. The new WTCC champion claimed victory on his very first visit to Macau.

"It has been an incredible season and it is fantastic to end it with a win at Macau, something that means a lot to me and could not even think of," said López.

"That's probably why I was feeling nervous, despite having already secured the title."
