Sam Bird "Driving at Eau Rouge with a GT car, wow"


Sam Bird took a second straight GTE-Pro pole position at Spa-Francorchamps. The AF Corse ace is sharing the factory supported #71 Ferrari 488 GTE with Davide Rigon.

The Briton had a chat with our friends at Sportscar Global about the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps right after the qualifying session..

Eau Rouge is still a magical corner, a magical part of the circuit. I have driven GP2 and Formula 3 here with a lot of downforce, but with a GT car there, wow. It's a serious corner and you have to do it right.

After all the hard work last night, we were really fast today, Davide [Rigon] did a fantastic work. I am confident about our chances for tomorrow's race.

We are closely working with Michelin engineers who are supporting us a lot in the series. I am sure we will made the right decision with tires tomorrow.

Ferrari vs Ford vs Aston Martin vs Porsche, we are racing against strong teams and manufacturers. This is a 6-hour race and it will be extremely tough.
