I have been waiting for a long time, but finally the day has arrived. My motivation is huge. I recently went to Argentina and it helped me to feel the support of people that will  follow me live on TV and I want to give good results. The preseason was good, but this will be a difficult season because the level in GP3 this year is very high, starting with my partners Daly and Harvey, said Facu Regalia.

As always, he kept thanking; the support of the people who have made it possible for me to be here, in a category like this, again. I would like  to highlight the support of my family, without whom nothing would have been possible, of Adrian Campos, Eduardo Ramirez and the ACA. Besides my new sponsors, I want to give my best for their confidence in me. There are many people who support me in Argentina and also in Europe, so I will fight hard to be on top”.
