#37 AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ
“It was a tough race. Although I recovered some positions at the start, I fell back down the order. I knew we were going to struggle today, so we tried to do our best. We were in a difficult group for moving up positions, but we pushed to the limit. We have scored some important points for the championship and we tried not to make mistakes, so I am satisfied in that aspect.”
