I am satisfied with these points, the whole weekend was great,” he emphasized after the Portugal game.

Although it sounds obvious, I have been learning every lap and making progress, even though it sounds obvious. Every lap has become more and more automated, and No need to think about them, so I ended up, but I think we have a better car than eighth place. We can get sixth or fifth place because this car drives very well.

Because I do fast laps, I enter free 2 or 3, so fQuickly adapt to changes“Fernando (Fernando) said, he has participated in three races as soon as he arrived in Spain, and has participated in three new F1 races.
