#37 AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ
“I’m very happy because today’s objective was to have a good qualifying session, and we did that. All weekend we have shown great pace, but we needed to finish it off with a great position on the grid since, in the last few races, the start has hindered the race for us. We are happy to have achieved our goal today, and tomorrow we will try to finish the weekend with a positive result. I feel good and I’m ready for it.”
