Not only Aston martin has a very rich racing history, I have also been given the opportunity to defend this brand alongside top drivers in a top team. I would like to thank Dr Kamelger and Dr Baenziger for their trust. But also, the people behind Jota and Arden for giving me this amazing opportunity. I will give everything I have got. This year will be extremely competitive and exciting and I hope to be successful for many seasons to come”.
