“Saturday was good, especially in FP3. We worked a lot on deciding which chassis to use for the practices and we did a great job in FP3 to finish third. Unfortunately, in Q2 everything didn’t really go as plan and I found myself in traffic. We could have been closer, but we are there, we are showing our potential so it is not all bad. Tomorrow is about enjoying the race and seeing what we can do. I am pleased with how the team has worked this weekend and what we have been able to do.”
