ANDREW'S RACE REVIEW

“A difficult end to what could’ve been a really positive weekend unfortunately. We came here looking to build on our good start in Spa but sadly that chance got taken away from us. Qualifying went very well and starting inside the top ten gave us every chance of a good points haul. Things were looking really good as we led the class during the first stint but sadly that was the highlight of our day. We know we have the pace and performance to score highly so we’ll regroup ahead of Monza and come back even stronger. I'd like to say a huge thanks to the team as always, they worked incredibly hard all weekend and I'm very grateful for all their efforts.”
