It was a tough race, but we are more than happy with the result. I tried to catch up with the leader but he was very fast, although the pace was not very different. There was a big gap to third place so we earned some good points for the championship. We gave everything and the team worked hard throughout the weekend to be as competitive as possible today. I have to thank everyone who makes it so that we can achieve these results.
It was important to have a good race today to continue building a good base for the coming rounds. We were faster and we took a step forward, although some small mistakes prevented us from gaining positions. We were able to face it and have a good pace. We will keep working for the next race at Le Mans.
