“First of all I must say a colossal congratulations to the workforce, our crew on automobile 7, Kamui and Jose next to me. They all did a large job. Now not easy stipulations at all this day with the rain, dry after which rain, but I assume we’re prone to this at Spa.
“To come lend a hand lend a hand after the prolonged ruin and to receive the spend, which used to be quite surprising I in reality must say with the penalties and stuff that we contain, we staunch thought we had been going to realize third this weekend. It’s been a large day.
“On the foundation it used to be barely wet, so it used to be laborious to take care of him, but we managed the gap. They had some points with their automobile and it used to be the supreme kind call to hotfoot on the slicks after we did. From then we managed to prolong a colossal gap but things had been constantly changing with the safety vehicles. It used to be no longer easy the total time. Automobile 8 used to be very mercurial in sectors 1 and 3 with the additional boost they’d. But we managed to pull it collectively and receive the auto in reality successfully dialled in.

So, it used to be laborious to predict one thing else. We went with the wet tyres for tremendous and we stayed on the wets as prolonged as attainable. We modified to slicks at a in reality appropriate point I train, we did a appropriate call on that. I jumped lend a hand in the auto when it began raining again.

This used to be the first time I in reality contain been out on rain tyres and slicks in the identical bustle, so it used to be appropriate skills.
