“It’s been a good weekend! I finished with a really good result and I’m really impressed with the team and how well we're working together. It’s been such a short turnaround for us, we haven’t had much time with the car, so to deliver what we have is very impressive. We have things we can improve on, but I’m happy with my performance this weekend and we’ve learned some lessons to take away.”
