WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY: JOSÉ MARÍA LÓPEZ
“What more could I ask for? Winning in Macau is a special feeling. It was the ideal way to round off what I consider to be the best season of my career. I was expecting Yvan to be untouchable on this circuit. But together, we all put the work in to produce this result. The car was perfect in the races and I was able to find a good pace. I attacked right to the end to avoid any mistakes. It’s now time to celebrate all this, first with the team and then at home in Argentina. In 2015, we’ll be starting again from scratch. I won’t be the outsider anymore, but rest assured, I’ll be defending my title.”
