“Yesterday my confidence on the bike improved greatly, and today my feeling was quite similar. In E-Pole we didn’t make any mistakes on our lap, which is definitely a positive thing. We more or less matched the time we had set in practice, so we have to continue working to find that extra something that allows us to go faster. The bike is working well, so tomorrow we will try to do our best to complete the weekend with a good race.”
