Very happy, track record and pole! We have been working very well, with the team we are growing a lot. We can really have a great race.
It was not easy today because starting from Q1 is always very risky, but luckily we managed to make a small step. Tomorrow it will be crucial to start very well, to stay in the leading group in order to aim for important positions.
