Honestly, throughout the weekend, they had the advantage. They were able to squeeze more speed, especially from Ultrasoft tire. On Friday we had problems with the pace in the Ultrasoft, but in qualifying we managed to add in this component.
Still, the team did a great job in the race we will start from the second row. In addition, an important only Sunday’s result.
Third place in qualifying in Sochi – a good result. To the second corner you can have a lot of work to do.”
