Le Mans, France (June 13, 2019) The No. 89 Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GTE-Pro will begin the 87th Annual 24 Hours of Le Mans race from the 17th position after some electrical and logistical issues earlier in the week. Despite the setbacks, Luis Felipe “Pipo” Derani, Oliver Jarvis, and Jules Gounon remain focused and are ready for the challenge.
“Pipo” Derani, Driver for the No. 89 Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 LM GTE-Pro:
“I think it hasn’t been an easy weekend, but that’s part of our sport. Sometimes we try to understand things a little bit beyond what can be understood. We are working hard to make a better car for the race, but unfortunately the race weekend hasn’t been according to plan. It’s a 24-hour race and we’re going to work hard. It’s been a pleasure to work with Giuseppe and the whole team. They are very dedicated. It’s not ideal at the moment, but we still have 24 hours to go and we’ll give our best.”
