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.
