He says despite topping the 2018 championship standings, he's still working hard to secure victory during the last race of the year.

“You never give up, you never stop working until it’s signed, sealed and done. So, we will go back home now, work on the car and make all the preparations to wrap it up at Zwartkops [Raceway]."
