“It’s been a tough race as from the first lap, I struggled to find the best feeling to push. I was quite on the limit and managed the situation to avoid mistakes or crashes. Our goal was the Top10 and we’ve taken it, we’ve done a good job. It was difficult at the braking areas. We’ll analyze the data to take a step forward in Mugello because we know we have potential”.
