We got good points and showed great speed, which shows that our car works well on different types of tracks.

It’s been a great few weeks for us, with three podiums in as many races, which exceeded our expectations as a team. We need to keep our feet on the ground and maintain this momentum. We have been very strong recently, especially in qualifying, but we must continue to work race after race and focus on our work.

Now I will focus more on the weekend, from start to finish, and I will be back to fight for the top positions.
