Today was a day to get back to feeling in a fast circuit. At first I struggled a bit because the other guys are still one step ahead of us but towards the end of the workout I felt much more comfortable with the bike. It was a logical step after having lost much of the preseason and now we do more work. Fortunately the bike has not changed much since the last Grand Prix last season and although there are always new things to try I can end up satisfied with the first day of practice. "
