WEC – What the Drivers Said After The Race

After the Total 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps the winning drivers took part in the post race press conferences.  Here is what they said.

Mike Conway – no7 Toyota Gazoo Racing Toyota TS050-Hybrid

“First of all I must say a big congratulations to the team, our crew on car 7, Kamui and Jose next to me. They all did a great job.  Not easy conditions at all today with the rain, dry and then rain, but I guess we are used to this at Spa.

“To come back after the long break and to get the win, which was quite unexpected I have to say with the penalties and stuff that we have, we just thought we were going to finish third this weekend. It’s been a great day.

“At the beginning it was pretty wet, so it was hard to keep up him, but we managed the gap.  They had some issues with their car and it was the right call to go on the slicks when we did.  From then we managed to extend a big gap but things were always changing with the safety cars.  It was challenging all of the time.  Car 8 was very quick in sectors 1 and 3 with the extra boost they had.  But we managed to pull it together and get the car really well dialled in.  The engineers did a great job overnight, they changed some things and it all worked out well for us today.”
