The long Season

The long and difficult season is over. The latest race in Bahrain was great even if we really wanted to be up on the first step of the podium, but our third place was enough to get the biggest results ever, since I’m racing in this Champioship. The Manufactures title is the best way to…

Forgetting about this race

This race is for sure something to forget. The 6 hours of Shanghai was pretty bad since the beginning when we had problems with one tire for some debris on track. So we had to stop even if it was not possible in that moment, but rules are rules so we had a penalty too.…

Qualifying day at Shanghai

Qualifying day at Shanghai. We were pretty fast yesterday during the free practice even if we had some problem with brakes stability, the car was not easy to drive. Working hard with our crew, AF Corse and Ferrari we finished 2nd behind our team mates James and Gimmi. Today the two Ford were really too…

We are still on Run!

We are still on run for the Championship. The weekend in Japan was not too bad for #71 but it’s still not enough having a look at the Fia Wec Classifications. We started the race with Sam, we were behind the #51 and the Aston Martin at the beginning. The car was pretty good, but…

Ready to Roll in the Land of the Rising Sun

Tought fight in Texas

A real tought fight here in Texas. We had a pretty good start considering how much the Aston Martin was fast, I tried to catch up them, but they were way too fast, anyway I was doing pretty good staying in the second position. We didn’t have any issue on the car, but during the…

Fourth position in Mexico

Yes, fourth position in Mexico for the #71. We started with Sam and since the beginning it was not easy, we were racing between the fifth and sixth position. I got in the car when it started to rain, thank to our engineer we kept slick tires and that was the best solution for us…

The comeback of #71

Very “comeback weekend” in Germany for the #71. Since friday during the free practice the car was going perfectly, just few mistakes on the qualifying session took Sam and me in the last position, but we did great overtaking until the 2nd position. I’m very happy about my stint, I was pretty fast overtaking the…

It’s not where you start, but where you finish.

Racing is a complicated sport at times. We brought a top car to the track here in Germany and were running times that had us near the fastest qualifying times. The set-up was perfect for the wet conditions at the beginning of qualifying but towards the end, conditions changed and left us with little time…
