The way Le Mans turned out this year reminded me a lot of 1998, when I won it for the first time. We had the perfect race, the perfect strategy, and everything went to plan. Then at the next race, at the Hockenheimring, we got trounced!
Last weekend at the Nurburgring, it was the same thing.
In this one there was no chance for us to fight with Peugeot. We were a lap a down within two hours, and that is certainly not what we expected.
It has been quite a hard pill to swallow after the jubilation of Le Mans.
