Bruno has the following to say about the deal:

This year far exceeded, all my expectations. Xray gave me all the conditions not only to grow as a better driver, by enabling me to drive amongst the best drivers in the world, but also by integrating me in a team full of talent, that always supported and challenged me to be better and to do better. It’s with an enormous satisfaction that I re-sign with Xray for the upcoming year, with the main goals, to work harder, to push the bar even higher, to always fight for the win and to support my team mates and Xray to achieve the success and results that we all deserve.
