André Negrão


"It's awesome to be back at Sebring, where we have fond memories after our win last year. The Prologue went well and we were able to try a lot of things, working on our race pace. Our times are not representative, and we keep improving step by step for next week.

 My teammates also did a great job with Olli discovering the track, Memo discovering the team, and both of them discovering the car. We are doing pretty well, so let’s see what we can do next week."




Memo Rojas

"I am really happy with my first official appearance with Alpine Elf Endurance Team at the Prologue, and I’m so excited to be in the FIA WEC as well this year. We had two great test days where we gathered a lot of information with the engineers and my teammates André and Olli.

I think we did a great job together and we are a strong package. There is still a lot of work to do as the LMP2 is so competitive this year with a high level in terms of drivers and teams, but we have two days to do our homework and prepare for the race week as best we can."




Olli Caldwell

"After this productive Prologue, I’m really excited for my first race at Sebring in the FIA WEC. It's an exciting time in my career, even though it's a big change for me. I'm still getting familiar with the team, but it is great to be part of this family.


Testing has gone really well, we tested a lot of different things, which is always the ultimate goal in these days, and now we can put it all together and hopefully have a great race week at Sebring.”




Matthieu Vaxiviere


"It's a good and quite positive start. From Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon, we progressed in every session. We have shown a good margin of improvement and I am confident that the best is yet to come. We will now debrief and analyse all the data to start the race week with this momentum.


The cohesion within the crews is good, and the team is positive with this interesting dynamic, but we still have some work to do with some areas to improve. In any case, I'm now looking forward to free practice!"





Charles Milesi


"We have had two productive days where we have been able to try many different set-up options on our car. I think we now know where we stand, and generally, that's quite positive. I'm delighted to continue the collaboration I started last year with Signatech, but this time in the Alpine colours.


I'm thrilled about it, and the team is genuinely committed to this programme. Let's now focus on next week and the first race ahead to see what we can achieve together."




Julien Canal


"After a ten-year absence, I was thrilled to be back at Sebring, especially now that I am proud to have joined Alpine Elf Endurance Team. The Prologue went well, but we still have some work to do. We are close-knit, and with two cars and six drivers, we will put all our feedbacks and ideas together for the team and its technical baggage to tackle the next stage.


We are not resting on our laurels, and we know that we will have to fight hard in this highly competitive LMP2 category against some of the best teams in the world. We remain focused and hopefully we can achieve a podium finish on Friday."

 



Philippe Sinault, Alpine Elf Endurance Team Principal


"We knew we had two intense days ahead of us in Sebring, and that was the case. Opening the season in Sebring is like starting the Tour de France with a stage in the Alps. Despite this challenge, the Prologue went smoothly and we gathered a lot of valuable information and data that we will analyse over the next two days before entering the first race week.


We explored several set-up options to learn more about the car and to keep learning about these tyres, especially on this atypical track. The dynamic between our two teams is extremely positive and our six drivers fully understand the importance of working together to take the team as far as possible.



We are satisfied as we have worked well as a team, the integration of our new members has gone well, and we now have all the necessary elements to prepare ideally the challenges ahead."
