Paolo Ruberti on his 24 Hours of Daytona

Paolo Ruberti looks back at his time at the Daytona 24 Hours

Back in Italy from Daytona (USA), where he has been behind the wheel of a Ferrari 458 Italia in the 24 Hours race held last weekend, Paolo Ruberti talks about the key moments of a race that had several unlucky episodes relegating the lineup to the final thirty-ninth absolute place.

"The car was certainly quick and we had the potential to finish within the class top five", said the Italian driver. "A problem to the engine forced us to skip qualifying and to start from the back, and then my co-equipers have been involved in two incidents that cost us some precious time for repairing the damages. Team Spirit of Race's men have done an excellent job that allowed us to end the race anyway and, considering the good race pace, we are sorry for the unavoidable laps we lost in the pits".
