Renault reserve pilot Sergey Sirotkin said that next week will begin preparation for a debut in the famous daily marathon “24 hours of Le Mans”, which will be held on June 17-18.
“On Wednesday we start training, will fly to the South of France to prepare the seats, the cars to the official tests, which will take place soon enough – said Sirotkin in the air “Match TV”. – After that go to run on simulator to their familiar comrades of ART. So Yes, [training] gradually beginning.”
Unlike all the other teams in LMP2, the speakers from the chassis Oreca, SMP Racing will be present at the start of the daily marathon Dallara chassis. However, Sergei is not scary.
“Honestly, I have so many other things that I pay attention to Renault, that kind of thing does not bother me at all, – said Sergey. My objective is to do the maximum possible. I got a chance, which is a dream of many throughout his career, and received very early, thanks to Boris Romanovich [Rothenberg] and all who took part in it. So I should make the most of this opportunity.”
Sirotkin will act in the same crew together with IndyCar racer Mikhail Aleshin and the winner of “Le Mans” in the category GTE Am Viktor Shaitar. But, as said Sergei, he will not try to become the leader of the crew.
“I don’t think I have anything to show. I’m just going to do my job – continued Sirotkin. – The results and so all will see. We will not each other to compete, rivals and so it will be enough. So I have nothing to prove.”
