"This was an amazing result and it's largely down to the way that the whole team has worked so well together," said the German rider who had originally been the substitute rider until an injury to Stphane Mertens meant that Barth got the ride at Le Mans. "All three of us put in very close and consistent lap times and that made us very competitive. I am very happy with this result because before the race, I thought that we'd do well to finish in the top 20, so to get 16th is super. I want to thank all the mechanics and everybody involved in the race effort because they've all played an important part in our success. Considering we were down on horsepower, I think we've done really well. I had no problems at all during the race apart from a bit of a sore neck, but I'm looking forwards to celebrating this success with the rest of the team."
