From Texas to Japan. Davide Rigon is already flying to Fuji circuit, scene of the fifth round of FIA WEC World Championship. After the good race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, the talented driver from Vicenza is ready to return at the wheel of the Ferrari 458 #71 and continue on his way to win the titles of Constructors and Team, the main aims for Ferrari and AF Corse.
For Davide, this race won’t be his debut on the 4,563 meters of the Japanese track at the foot of Mount Fuji, having taken part in last season’s round with the colours of 8Star Motorsport. The weekend, however, was affected by bad weather and the race was cancelled after only 16 laps.
“Half of the tracks on which I’ve driven till today were unknown to me and, therefore, I had to face one more difficulty. Finally, this weekend we get on a track on which I’ve already run a few kilometers, even if, unfortunately, a year ago I could put together only a few laps, because of the weather and race’s cancellation. I’m happy to be back to drive after the good results of Austin’s track and I’ll try to treasure the experience of last year”, Davide Rigon says, flying to Japan. “We hope to find a stable weekend on the front of weather conditions, in order to prepare the 6 Hours as best as we can. Our goal have to be the podium and, above all, to gain points in view of Constructors’ Championship”.
Reached the mid-season, Ferrari leads the standings with 157 points. “We enter in the second half of the championship and both my partner James Calado and I have gained a good experience with this car. We are ready for the new adventure”, Davide concludes.
