Chevrolet Motorsports Manager Eric Neve says that measures have been taken to help avoid a repeat of events in Monza where their drivers 'exceeded the limits'.

The first race saw opening lap contact between Rob Huff and Alain Menu that put both into the gravel, while contact in race two between Huff and Yvan Muller put the latter facing backwards at the first chicane, although he shrugged of the incident to record a memorable double win.

Although their season got off to a good start with some good results, Neve was unhappy with the sporting behaviour of his drivers, something that he says he has since addressed ahead of the races in Valencia.

“Monza was, of course, quite a memorable season-opener with great results for the team,” he said. “From a sporting point of view, some limits were exceeded and we took appropriate measures to make sure that this does not happen again.

“We don't want any of our drivers to be penalized by the behaviour of a team mate, and we have made that very clear. We will be watching closely what happens in Valencia and I am sure that the sportive spirit we had throughout last year will prevail.”
