“It's an extraordinary milestone”
“For the team it is an extraordinary milestone. A figure that represents the capability??, strength?? and professionalism that we have been demonstrating since day one. You don't get 100 podiums in any way, but you get them thanks to the effort and professionalism of all those who are part of the VDS cat family. No doubt it is a nice figure and a great reward for our daily effort. I would also like to emphasise the importance of all those friends and sponsors that have accompanied us throughout all this time because their collaboration has been key for us to accomplish these 100 wonderful podiums”.
