ANDREW'S RACE REVIEW

“Firstly I’d like to say a huge thank you to the team for all of their hard work this week, we simply wouldn’t be here without them. We had a really strong race and we can be really proud of our result. There were lots of challenges to face, such as the weather and variation in strategy. Overall, I’m really pleased to end the weekend on a high. I’d also like to say a big thank you to Satoshi and Tomonobu as well, they drove brilliantly all weekend and it’s a pleasure to share this result with them.”
