Cambridge's Rob Huff is still waiting for his first home World Touring Car victory after two runners-up finishes at Donnington over the weekend.

The results were good enough for the 31-year-old to retain his championship lead over team-mate Yvan Muller.

"I've had five podiums in the UK but never a win, I'm beginning to feel like I'm always the bridesmaid," Huff joked.

"However, the overall championship is more important and it's great to come away still leading."

After a second-place finish in race one, the Chevrolet driver started the second day ninth on the reverse grid, and climbed through the field to finish behind Frenchman Muller.

Huff's best overall finish in the WTCC is third in the drivers' standings, but he now holds a 15-point advantage over Muller.

"The Chevrolet Cruze is a strong car and now we have to focus on scoring pole positions and victories in the next few races," he added.
