For example, is not easy that the curve 1 goes well. When you get to sss you have to get the proper position, there are many potholes and you have to be very careful.”
“it Is true that the poles that I have lost here in other years have been in the first curve, so it’s great to get here and finally to get the first pole and make a very good first sector, that shows the progress we have made“.

“it Is a departure very difficult, we have seen how they can make bad outputs here and we have proved it even in the free practice sessions at the exit of the pit lane. It is very different because you have to go to fund. What we will see tomorrow, will be interesting.”
