Alex Tagliani had a disappointing 2007 campaign at Rocketsports Racing in the Champcar World Series and the struggle continued in the last race at Mexico City.
Alex fought with the car all week-end long, earning on his way a 14th position on the starting grid. As if the handling problems on this car weren't enough, Alex's car stalled on the start relegating him to the back of the pack. Helped by a quick pit stop from his team and the stalling of two other cars, Tagliani moved back up to 14th on the restart. Alex climbed up to 11th position at some point but an over steering car forced him to wear his tires out too quickly and he crossed the finish line in 13th position, out of 14 running cars at the end (17 took the green flag).
Grabbing some points throughout the season, Tagliani was shown in 10th place of the Champcar World Series standings, a 3rd top 10 in as many years at Rocketsports Racing. It's the sixth time Alex finishes in the top 10 in Champcar in 8 seasons.
From his quotes after the race, Tagliani is already looking forward to next season but is looking at a contract with other teams : "It is definitely not the way that we wanted to end the season. For our last race together, it is definitively something that makes me sad, but we have been struggling with the #8 Rocketsports car all weekend. We have destroyed every set of tires that we put on the car during the race, because we never got the set up. [...] Overall, the team has been trying very hard all season, and I would like to thank them for all their hard work and dedication. Now we just have to look at the future. For me, I am already going to be looking for what I am going to be doing next year and Champ Car is definitely my choice."
