What he said after WTCR Clean Fuels for All Race of France?
“It was really nice to see the stands full of spectators, especially here at my home race. I had cool first race, I got a good start and was able to gain places. The second race was one to forget with the puncture while being in a podium position. We are going to be back, that’s for sure.”
