Davide Rigon delighted with new Ferrari 488 GTE performances in FIA WEC Prologue

Davide Rigon had a strong Prologue at the Paul Ricard circuit. He was behind the wheel of the factory supported #71 Ferrari 488 GTE from AF Corse, he shared the car with new comer Sam Bird.

The Italian driver was among the quikest drivers in GTE-Pro and ended the official FIA World Endurance Championship two-day tests in second place right behind team-mates Gianmaria Bruni and James Calado on the sister #51Ferrari 488 GTE.

David Rigon was delighted with the car's performance and team work at the Castellet. The Ferrari factory driver shared his thoughts about the recent FIA WEC tests on his official website.

I had a pretty intense test session here at Paul Ricard. Everything was perfect, even if we know all the competitors are careful to stay in the shadow in this occasion, before the big start at Silverstone.

Anyway I had the chance to try our 488, which is important for the Championship. I have a pretty good feeling with my new teammate Sam Bird, we have much work to do  together, but that’s was a good start.

I’m happy to work again with the team AF Corse to get back our good feeling, thanks to this test.
