Rolex 24, the aftermath
In the post-race press conference, Max Angelelli was outspoken about what he saw as an unfair performance advantage the Ganassi cars had over the rest of the field. Quotes:
"It's so obvious, so unfair. We were hoping to make it to the end and beat them with the fuel; so we didn't change tyres. I had many many laps on my tyres. We were hoping to make it like that, with this strategy, and get the win. But the 01 car is in another league. It is A-class. We are B-class."
Why does he think they had their engines restricted? - "I wanted to ask you that. I need an answer. Because there is no explanation, there is no point. Everybody could see it yesterday, the day before yesterday, today - I don't understand. This makes no sense, this is not competition. I am competing agfainst myself."
"It's like driving with your hands cuffed. You can't do it."
Is he a sore loser? Does he have a point?
