“I’m happy with the first day at Le Mans. In the morning we had a couple of problems, but it was generally, also because it was a new track for me there was a bit of kaos, but in the afternoon we fixed everything I have adapted well to the track and I have pressed to get a good time and we have achieved it. Then we have focused on working towards the race and I think we are on the right track. First positive day and tomorrow to continue working and polishing the details that we have left.”
