Until our retirement in Fuji, Thomas Holzer and I had a good race and were able to keep up with our competitors. We are heading to Shanghai with a positive feeling and we hope that we will have a good weekend.”

James Rossiter, Race Driver #32: “In Fuji, we had a strong race and we were leading the LMP2 class for a long time. We want to build on this success and are trying hard to have another good weekend.

Shanghai marks the final of the season and my team mates and I are looking forward to racing in China. We hope that we can achieve our best result of the season.”
