Fisichella, Bruni and Vilander: 'Winning the Le Mans 24 Hours is a team effort'
|The excitement following this amazing win just achieved at Le Mans and the awareness that it's a truly important result, down to the work of the team, has united the comments of the drivers who delivered this great result. It was a case of joy and satisfaction for Giancarlo Fisichella, who had this to say after crossing the line: 'This is the most important race of the year and at the end of it, we achieved our objective. The win was especially down to the incredible efforts of the AF Corse guys who had to change the chassis after the accident on Wednesday, delivering a car that was better than anyone could have expected. I did not think I would be make it out on track for the final twenty minutes of qualifying, however thanks to their efforts, the miracle happened. Thanks guys, thank you to Amato and to Ferrari…and to everyone who contributed to this win.' The 24 Hours is the most sought after prize in the career of a driver, even for a race veteran like Toni Vilander. 'Today, we have taken the most important win in the GT class. Ferrari and AF Corse did a great job of preparing for it and they were incredible when it came to repairing the car in practice. We all believed, from start to finish and this is the result.' One of those who believed in it the most was definitely Gimmi Bruni, who inevitably thought back to the disappointment of 2011, citing it as a something that spurred him on this tme. 'After what happened last year, when we lost the race in the final hour, this year was a nice revenge. The win came thanks to a long period of preparation and testing which kept us busy all year. The mechanics were fantastic and my team-mates were perfect. That's the only way to win a 24 hour race, all working together. Also after the accident, the team did not get demoralized and out on track, we did our bit to pay them back for their efforts.'|
