Qualifying wise, the Brazilians had the edge on us the second half of the season. It’s so tricky to pass in these cars but I think we had the ultimate speed. It was cool to race our home race as a double header in front of Jaguar Land Rover and all of our partners. I was very proud to represent Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing this season.”
