The newest GP2 champion reflects on his season

GP2 SeriesGP2 - Davide Valsecchi (DAMS) GP2 Series Champion 2012GP2 Series: Davide Valsecchi, 2012 GP2 champion: what does that mean to you?
Davide Valsecchi: It’s unbelievable! It’s a really good feeling, and I’m really, really happy, because this year we had a great season: I drove really well and our car was really competitive almost every time, so I’m really happy that at the end, when it was really important, we had the victory last time in Monza and we were one of the best this weekend too. When it was important, me and DAMS didn’t make any mistakes, and we showed this year with four victories, with ten podiums and with six fastest laps that we were the best! I hope tomorrow to have a really good job, and to pay back DAMS for the car they gave to me all season long, and to beat Lotus for the teams’ championship.
