Arriving in this event very load and determined to obtain the maximum, especially after the good performance so far, where we touched upon several times the podium and have cut the finish line first among the Pirelli rubber in the last appointment. For the first time be working directly with Malucelli and Ruberti, two pilots with great experience from which I can learn a lot. Before this match I attended the tests on their collective Belgian circuit where we have tried in different conditions, collecting plenty of information. In addition we have made specific testing with Pirelli and once again we managed to improve performance, already excellent, our tyres. All this makes me very confident. Then we all know how the races --. especially those Endurance".
