We are in talks with Sauber, mainly. In fact, Sauber is our priority right now. Throughout my stay in the team, we’ve seen the two sides of the coin. In the first year I was able to do many things, while our second season has been a difficult time because the car has not been competitive“.

These two points mean a lot to me and for the team, so that I hope soon to be able to say something about my plans for the future. I Hope that these points will help me, because we know how important they are to the team”.
