“That was one of the toughest races I’ve ever had in my life. I battled from the beginning right to the end. Things got harder in the last 7 or 8 laps, but I’m very happy with the way it finished. The team did a great job throughout the weekend, as we were struggling in free practice. This is the fourth podium in the last five contests and that shows that we are starting to be strong at every Grand Prix. The main thing is that we have found something that helps me maintain the same level until the end of the race. We have to keep pushing very hard for the rest of the season.”
