"Today we had a good feeling because we ran a very good pace. Here at Mugello pole to achieve a return is difficult because you have to take reference drivers to take advantage of aspirations. The traffic generated in the circuit cuts off a bit around and you have to be very attentive to the other drivers. Tomorrow will be a race in a group, very long and very hard physically. Heat and address changes physically wear out much. We must be very focused on this circuit. The most important thing is that for the race tomorrow we have a good base and we leave from the front line. "
