“I did not expect to finish in eighth place in the final three, but this time I went around and could have been worse. I had psyched much to avoid a scare like last year, because the track was very fast and very crossera too much for my taste. Although I had a shock, qualifying went well and scored the third best time of my stint, but the problems came in the finals. incolucrado In all I was in a fall with other drivers and even though I went up all possible, I could not move from eighth place. Within a couple of weeks, in Poland, we will give everything and surely we do better. This time I lacked feeling and some speed, and I used to train in highly technical areas tracks so fast and I do not feel comfortable, but we will fix it and I’m sure they can fight for the podium. We must be positive, because we are ninth in the overall standings with 21 points, but the third has 34, so we can close the gap “.
