“I am happy with this start of the championship, it was important to start the season in the front positions. Since yesterday we knew that we could be ahead and little by little, calmly, I set my pace. I have overtaken several pilots to reach the front group and I think with a couple of laps more we would have got the podium. Anyway, I’m happy and thanks to the team for their work.
