MIKE'S RACE PREVIEW

“I enjoy racing in Bahrain and I have had some nice moments there over the years; I actually won my first WEC race with TOYOTA there in 2014 and of course Kamui, José and I won the title there the last two years. Realistically, the World Championship is over for our car this year so we will concentrate on finishing the season on a high. We’ve had some frustrating races but it would be great to go into the winter on the back of a victory.”
