“We return to Aragon with a very good feeling, after having achieved our first podium. The goal is to continue working as we have done so far, without relaxing too much or losing focus. Last week’s rostrum took the pressure off us, so we will try to take advantage of this confidence to fight for a great result in Sunday’s race. Both the team and I will do our best, as we have done in all the Grands Prix so far.”

“Last week I felt good and our pace was strong, so we have to continue working in the same way. At the Grand Prix of Teruel we have to try to complete a race without any mistakes. In addition, we have to take a step forward in qualifying to place higher up on Sunday’s starting grid and ensure an easier start and first few laps. As always, we will do our best to achieve our goals.”
