#58 Juanfran Guevara: 12th [RACE]
“Today we could fix things, eventually. This was one of the most complicated weekends we’ve had since the beginning of 2016. We had sessions on dry tarmac and sessions under the rain, three crashes throughout the Grand Prix: generally speaking, it was quite complicated. I believe that in the end we managed to put in a strong comeback. We started from the last row of the grid and we crossed the finishing line twelfth. We moved up seventeen places and I’m satisfied with achieving four points for the Championship Classification. In any case we still have plenty of work to sort out, I don’t really think this is the type of results we deserve. However, today we couldn’t have done much better, the setting we found wouldn’t have brought us much farther. During the upcoming week we’ll work for Sachsenring. We’ll do our best to have a happy ending before the summer break and to keep making progress: it’s something we can achieve, in order to sum up important points.”
