This afternoon the qualification session was held with a view to 12h from Sebring, second test of IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, commonly called American Resistance Championship. Filipe Albuquerque secured the 4th place, second row of the grid. A position that leaves the coach of Coimbra as well as his teammates, João Barbosa and Brendon Hartley very comfortable, especially after having suffered with some problems in the sessions of free practice.
"I was happy with the lap, we were only three tenths of the first place and after yesterday's problems, this is a very good result. We overcame the difficulties of yesterday and as we know that our car is not fast in qualifying, getting to finish so close to the first one is encouraging, "began by referring to Filipe Albuquerque.
"Tomorrow, the story will be different. We know the car we have and the qualities both of the team and the set of drivers. The forecast indicates rainfall and this can shuffle things a bit. But even so, for us, in terms of objective nothing changes. We just want to win! "Concluded Filipe Albuquerque.
