In the FIA Endurance Trophy for GTE Am Drivers Ruberti and his co-equipers Gianluca Roda and Christian Ried ended the season in sixth place with 76.5 points and a podium finish in Brazil as best result.

Paolo Ruberti:
"After the good results obtained in 2012 we expected to be protagonists also in this season, but things did not go as we had hoped for: from the one side the level of lineups grew a lot in LMGTE Am, while from the other Aston Martins have often turned out to be unbeatable. As far as I am concerned, despite the final position in the standings, my overall balance is positive: I have been the quickest in qualifying and in the race in several occasions. Gianluca, Chrisitian and I did a great job with the team during the whole season".
