I guess we are no longer in no man’s land“Krack said. “TO In Suzuka, despite the damage and the low chance of winning, we were able to bring home the best result. This means that we are no longer in no man’s land. We were even ahead of Mercedes so the signs are encouraging.”.

Fortunately then there was a red flag that allowed us to change strategy. The red tire was a strategic tire given that there are usually many Safety cars and distractions at”.
