We had a difficult weekend with one race scheduled in the middle of the day and the other at night: the team did an excellent job putting us in the best possible conditions to compete. The qualifications were really struggled and I would say that we made a good work. The two races then gave us two third places as proof of how much we have grown compared to the Silverstone debut: I am sure that we will grow further during the season and we will be able to take even greater satisfaction
