“I am very happy with today because we worked a lot with the bike, I had two crashes which is not good and my mistake but I am learning a lot. Was funny this morning in the first session because the feeling was like a new circuit to me, because is only the second time and I did’nt feel so good but this afternoon I was fast, we changed something in the bike which is good for the day but it did’nt helptoo much, the Team has done a great job and I feel really confident for tomorrow and I think we can improve a lot. For sure we need to make a good race this week end but I’m happy and I know I can do a good job so I’m excited for the practice and the qualifying but obviously the main thing is the race and we are working hard”.
