Before the race, tests took place in which the crew of Fernando Alonso was the fastest. The driver shared his expectations from the upcoming competitions.
Two-time Formula One Champion Fernando Alonso will compete in the Wayne Taylor Racing team. The marathon itself starts on January 26th, and the 4th day the tests started, which generally last for three days. In Friday’s races, Wayne Taylor came first on the prototype Cadillac DPi-V.R. Behind the wheel was Kamui Kobayashi, ahead of his opponent on the Mazda by 0, 008 seconds. His best lap time is 1: 36,596.
Last year, Alonso took part in the marathon for the first time. Then he came only 38th, but this year he expects to achieve much greater success. “We have high expectations. We are stronger than we were last year. Well, what will happen in the end – we’ll see, ”- says the driver in an interview with journalists.
“I will use all my experience gained a year ago. The approach to the race has also changed. If last year we were preparing for Le Mans, then we intend to win this. ”
Now the race in the car with the cockpit closed is already familiar to the rider, and he can fully enjoy it. “So far, everything is going well with us, I think we will be able to be competitive on the track and show a good result.”
