Overtaking maneuvers and endurance shaped the race of Sini, who was able to conquer the top 10 of the overall standings under the checkered flag. Despite a less driven week and many problems during the year, Francesco finished the season so close to the top 10.It was an intense year. We often showed very high potential, but too often we had to say goodbye to a good result: once it was a puncture, once an engine failure, once a contact, once the rain. Little things that have taken us far from the result we deserve. We missed the top result, but we did a very good job, very useful for the future. We hope that we could make up for the bad luck and start the new season confidently.“Said the Italian driver.
