“It was a shame and I’m very frustrated that I couldn’t complete the race and didn’t even have a chance to try. I’m going through a difficult time for me, and I’m convinced that it can’t get any worse. We’ll keep working to make it better for the next races.”

“I’m happy to have finished the race, but at the same time frustrated because I still can’t go fast. We are learning and trying to change what is going wrong. The important thing is to keep working to change things in the next races. We managed to score points, great work from the team who always help me.”
