While it is vital for me to score points after our Daytona disappointment, my outright objective is to win the race. Sebring, much like Daytona, is one of the biggest sportscar endurance races in the world, so a victory here is much more important to me than the points that come with it.
Sunset falls around three hours before the finish and driving in darkness at Sebring is much more difficult compared to Daytona where much of the track was artificially lit by floodlights. Having driven at the Sebring test last month, I think it’s even darker than Le Mans which is the only other track I’ve raced at in darkness.
Heading to Sebring is going to be a little different to Daytona because the track is more demanding physically but the emotions behind entering a big race are pretty much the same. Both races are good benchmarks for me to pin myself up against some of the best drivers in motorsport. We had a really good [Sebring] test, the Ligier was working a lot better than it was at Daytona. I’m really looking forward to this race.
