Alvaro Looks Ahead To Catalunya
“Racing in Spain is always special because you can feel the energy and the support of the fans and it gives you an extra boost compared to other circuits. Arriving here as the series leader gives me a lot of confidence and determination to put on a good show. I’d like to win because we haven’t done so since Japan and I think the team and myself are all willing ourselves to victory again. We’ll do a good job during practice to make sure that we can be fighting for victory come Sunday.
Last year we came here after a disastrous start to the season and we needed a good result so I was really careful in the race. I wanted to win but I was trying so hard to close the doors in the corners I ran wide and conceded victory. Montmeló is a fast circuit, similar to Mugello although with a few more slow sections. It is not one of my favourites but it’s a nice place and the fans always contribute to make for a special atmosphere.”
