Fernando Alonso says he remembers every lap from this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans and that understanding where to improve was key to taking the victory in the famous race last June.
Speaking alongside his teammates at the recent FIA Gala in Paris, Alonso recounts his memories of the weekend at Le Mans, including his time in the car during the night, as well as the series as a whole throughout the year,
"I remember. I think there was a couple of situations where I was doing more driving," Alonso said. "Certain windows I performed better and then certain windows where I was struggling a little bit more.
"Once we understood that we tried to use it to our won benefit, but I remember every lap of the second of our two years there. It was a strange championship having half of 2018 and half of 2019.
"All the testing and all the races we did. We spent so many hours with the team, with the teammates and discovering a new part of motorsport."
Alonso also mentioned about competing in the 2018 F1 season alongside his full-time WEC campaign with Toyota and told of although he found the joint effort very intense, it was an experience he enjoyed doing.
Alonso also showed his disbelief of being at the gala as receiving a world title once again and explained his happiness of being a world champion once again.
"Combining two championships in 2018 with F1 and endurance was very intense," Alonso explained. "But a lovely experience.
"Every world championship is unique and it's nice to sit here as a world champion again. My first time was in 1996 when I came with the FIA karting championship and now 23 years later, I am sitting here with a world endurance.
"It's just about loving what you do and it doesn't matter what category as long as you are performing at your best level and you are trying to improve as a driver."
