I have to say the track and the organ­is­ers were fan­tas­tic! It real­ly was a won­der­ful event. I enjoyed my time at the Autó­dro­mo Her­manos Rodríguez, but the track takes a bit of get­ting used to and in my opin­ion isn’t ful­ly suit­ed to the WEC.

At ByKolles, our race week­end went well over­all. Apart from the first free prac­tice ses­sion, when our engine went on strike, we were able to per­form well across all of the ses­sions. I was also sat­is­fied with my own per­for­mance, as I was able to put in real­ly com­pet­i­tive lap times.

I built on this in the race, but unfor­tu­nate­ly our car caught fire once again. This time, though, I was able to bring it back to the pits. Our mechan­ics quick­ly got to work and gave their all and we were back on track after just 20 min­utes. In the end, we man­aged to fin­ish the race.

It’s not easy for us at the moment but we are on the right track and I think we can build on this result next week in Texas.
