40 DARRYN BINDER
“Today we finished the three days of testing here at Jerez, taking another small step forward. Every day here at Jerez we have made an improvement in small ways; we have been testing different setups and I think we are beginning to find the right path to follow in the remaining days of testing. Also, I know what points I should look at to improve my riding, so I will work on those during the break before the next test so that we can come back stronger. We have improvement to make, so we must continue to work very hard.”
