Ward Toyota of Anthony Davidson has admitted that a little nervous before the start of the race “24 hours of Le Mans” because of the bad luck of the Japanese manufacturer in the past.
Toyota repeatedly missed a victory at Le Mans, and the most dramatic loss occurred in last year’s race when six minutes before the end with the car Davidson was in trouble.
On the eve of “24 hours of Le Mans”
In 2010, Anthony played in the Peugeot, and despite a clear advantage over the Audi, none of the three crews of the team failed to reach the finish line.
“Yes, there is a feeling that is a curse, and in my case not only with the car, confessed finished second in qualifying Davidson in an interview with AUTOSPORT. – It is difficult, of course, but still we must not give vent to emotions. Maybe I’m a pessimist, but I fail more than succeed.”
Davidson said that a year ago at the last minute got excited for a possible victory.
“Last year, I began to think about the podium ten minutes before the end of the race like I had some kind of premonition,” added the Briton.
Despite pole and a record time in the performance of Kamui Kobayashi, Davidson does not believe that in the race Toyota will dominate so clearly.
“I think we have the advantage, however, the Porsche will definitely be closer,” concluded Davidson.
