The most important thing is that we finished near the front of the race, even though we lacked power, especially in the line is where we have suffered more. The first part of the race was positive and ended with good feelings. Now we turn to Japan, a circuit completely new to me, so we have much work to do "

We have to improve in the qualifying session, and we left behind and the front group always imposes that second and a half at the beginning of a long career after recovering costs. In the race we got up four positions, but in the end we are left with the rear tire gradient. In Japan we hope to improve and get hooked with the front group. "
