Replace the fire extinguisher was worth the time, but I managed to catch up. It’s a short track, so we prevented the traffic. As you can see, the situation is not ideal.
If we talk about pace, some laps were strong, others not so good. Overall the car is pretty quick, but we are going back to the drawing Board.
Need to find the right balance, and then we can take a step forward.”
