A weekeng to forget overall, or maybe learn a few things. After not having race pace on saturday, he managed to put the car in front on sunday, but two corners before the end, a mistake from his side took him out of the podium. Both Rounds at the end were so complicate. No good enough pace, lot of grip. At the end, not the results he was expecting. A step back to analyze all the experience and look forward next race.
