The stone was thrown Leonel Pernía after the competition of Super TC2000 en rosary. The official team rider Renault, who finished fourth on the Santa Fe track, hinted that his car's engine did not have the same performance as some of its rivals. In this way, the 2019 champion questioned the management of the category when defining the mappings of the Oreca drivers for Sunday.

The one who took the witness from Tanito was Julian Santero, which represents the Toyota. The Mendoza also admitted that the situation generates some doubts and that he does not run smoothly.

Julian Santero"It's a complex situation ... The engine mappings are changed to run on Sunday with less power and use Push to Pass, which is what activates one hundred percent of the engine's performance"Santero told Champions.

"There were problems in the previous races when the power was lowered because the engines were not matched", the guinea pig accused. "When we have it at one hundred there is no problem, but yes when power is removed because not all engines are exactly the same"he warned.

"I complained about the Canapino engine in San Juan and there were also complaints about the Rossi's engine in La Pampa ... Slightly complex situations have been generated", Santero insisted, who is third in the contest behind Canapino and Pernía.

Julian SanteroHowever, he clarified that his opinion is well founded "Based on our sensations above the car ...". And I add: "That does not mean anything, maybe we are different aerodynamically or different with the set-up of the car ...".

However, he did not hide that this situation causes uncertainty when running. “When you lower the power, doubts are generated and there is no peace of mind knowing that you are going to be the same as the rest. I understand that that is why the engine setting is done with the two batches on Friday, so that it can be tested and the engines can be matched ”, said.
