This Victory feels great ! We’re having obviously a very good momentum after winning in Silverstone and the second place in the Fuji 6h, but to win in China was very important for the Jackie Chan DC Racing. I am proud being part of that, especially as the DC Racing, even before teaming up with Jackie Chan, had never made to the rostrum, I am very happy for them!
Tough conditions when I took the start with many laps under Safety-Car before stopping the race with a Red Flag. The first time for 45mins before sending us back for some more laps before a new Red Flag… I stayed around 2 hours in the car to close only a dozen laps under Green conditions. I opened a gap thanks to a dared strategy (we stopped in 1st, before having an empty fuel tank to get a free track but risking to stop one more time compare to anyone else) and a good race pace. We thought being in a safe situation as the track was getting better and still having a good gap after Ho-Pin drove but it rained again 1/2 hour before the checkered flag. Gabriel was in intermediate tires because he had to stop before the others after our aggressive strategy… The others were all in Wet tires and the last Safety Car left them on track for 3 laps before the end, it was very stressful but we got our 2nd win of the year !!
