“Another difficult race, but the positive thing is that I’m continuing to feel better on the bike. We knew this track would be really tough with all the left-hand turns, but we nevertheless managed to finish both races not far from the points. Our thoughts now turn to the next round at Portimao, a track where I’m we can do a lot better. Thanks to the team for all their precious support.”
