Even if their morning turned out to be a little more difficult than what they were expecting, the professional drivers are optimistic about the race outcomes in the next couple of days
“I’m quite optimistic about our potential here in Shanghai. Everything is new to me; team, car and track, and I’m obviously missing some laps from yesterday, where I sat out. Despite this I had a good feeling through FP1, lapping this circuit for the first time. Combining my best sectors also shows that I’m competitive and in ballpark of the rest. We now have to study the data more closely and put it all together for tomorrow.”, sais Anders Fjordbach, driver for the Algarve Pro Racing team
