Josh Files: “It’s great to take the championship with a double win. Things may look easy from the outside, but they were not. The entire weekend was about tires, and I am very happy that we took the decision to save new tyres for the races. In both, the tyres were completely dead at the end. Otherwise, the car performed very well”
