“Huge congratulations to the team for all the work they’ve done to get us here on the top step of the podium. We overcame a small issue yesterday with the time penalty, but the team stayed focused and we’ve had a fantastic day today with the win in the semi-final and the final. The car felt great and the racing was exciting at the start of both races so I’m really happy that Molly and I could take the win for everyone at RXR and all of our amazing fans.”
