“I’m very satisfied with this result as it was our target to start from the first rows. We have a strong pace and the feeling with the machine is really good so I aim at fighting with the top guys. When it started to rain at the end of the Q1 we had to change the set up quickly. I want to thank the team for the incredible job. I look forward to the race. I think we can get a good result on this track”.
