With the second place at 6 Hours of Fuji, Rigon and James beginning a part of the Top 10 and Ferrari confirmed his leadership on the Contructors teams chart. “I have to say in China I have always a good luck.

After Shanghai the FIA WEC is going in Bahrain (November 15th) and in Brazil (November 30th) for the final race.
“On the qualifications we can give something to our adversaries and then to be protagonist during the race. Me and James are two “rookies” in the masters class, so we are ready to give our contribution to give the victory to our Ferrari team. Finally we are racing in the tracks that I know very well, this is a good thing for me. Also, I think Shanghai will be the last track not favorable for us”.
