TEAM JSB COMPETITION
“ I’m happy. It wasn’t an easy weekend. I was fourth in race 1 on Saturday, which wasn’t bad. In race 2 I made a good start and closed the gap to Aurelien (Comte) in the lead, but the entry of the safety car didn’t help me. It was complicated after the restart as we were very close in terms of performance. On the whole it was a very good weekend. The 308TCR was really quick and reliable. And I’ve got a very good team. I’d like to thank them for all the hard work that they’ve put in.”
