Despite a mistake, qualifying went well and I posted the fifth fastest time in my group. A few difficulties saw us struggle to be quick during the race and I had to retire in the Final due to a technical problem that affected both the performance and the result. It wasn’t a bad first race in OK, but we could have achieved better results”.

I’m not happy with the final result, but we proved that we can compete for victory and have the potential to finish in the top positions with all our drivers “.
