FIA WEC Le Mans - Davide Rigon: 'A Dream Faded Too Soon'

A 24H of Le Mans with two sides for Davide Rigon. While there is great satisfaction for the triumph of the AF Corse team with the #51 twin car of the friends Bruni, Fisichella and Villander, on the other side there’s the regret for having seen the dream fading after only a few hours of race.

After the terrible accident in qualifying of Calado, the mens in red of Amato Ferrari had succeeded in the miracle of rebuilding the Ferrari 458 just in time for the final warm-up on Saturday morning, managing to get quickly a new shell. Unfortunately, this major effort was vanished a few hours after the start, when Davide was betrayed by a technical problem, forcing him to a definitive retirement from the race. “It has been a cold shower”, Davide Rigon – disconsolate – says. “I have to congratulate all the staff of AFCorse and Ferrari. The guys have did a miracle. They practically rebuilt the whole machine working nonstop at night, allowing us to get back on track for the warm-up. Unfortunately, the dream lasted only a few hours. A real shame”.

The premises were good. Before retiring, the #71 Ferrari was recovering. “Our pace was really good. I was regaining different positions, and when it started to rain, we guessed the strategy”, continues the driver from Vicenza (Italy). “The premises were good, but races are races. Now I just want to wish a big good luck for a speedy recovery to James”. After the terrible accident, the British driver was taken to the hospital where he was diagnosed a cerebral edema.

“Now I want to leave behind this disappointment quickly and think about the next challenge in Austin, with the goal of returning to Le Mans next year ready for a redeem”. The appointment with FIA WEC is therefore set for September 20th, with the fourth round at the Circuit of the Americas.
