“I’m very happy with today’s result. Starting 12th made everything harder for me. In the qualifying I didn’t really feel comfortable, so it was a long night whilst I thought about how to improve for the race. Finally, this morning in the warm up we took the step forward that we needed. I have to thank the team, because in the race I had the best bike of the whole weekend, which is the important thing. I feel very strong for the next Grand Prix.”
