LISTEN TO THE AUDIO/WATCH THE VIDEO:
Jean-Karl, after a annoying day the day before this day this need to in point of fact feel a deserved snatch.
I’m ecstatic. You recognize, after I became within the auto before the inch I stated ‘you know what, if I’m on the rostrum and prefer to switch to the press conference I’m no longer even going to chat because I’m so pissed about the day before this day. That became per chance a stupid response. Now… for obvious, the day before this day became annoying, annoying to treasure the inconsistency of the penalty. I consistently agree if I make one thing wrong to grab it, but all americans has to grab it. Anyway, let’s take into myth the long inch and that’s what I did. I became in point of fact focused this morning about what to make. Appropriate originate, a in point of fact upright originate after which, I gained’t narrate I had to serve watch over the inch, but many of the job became done already. And Santi became very swiftly and I’m marvelous obvious he moreover wants a victory so he became pushing exhausting. However no mountainous mistakes, attempting to utilize the help of my automobile where I know I will make a niche and serve watch over the leisure of the notice. We are able to also be at liberty and intensely ecstatic with what we’re doing, what we’re reaching as a in point of fact little team. It’s a upright originate to the day, now we’ve to total it.
It’s your first snatch since Macau 2018.
Sure, it’s been long, too long!
We seen an absence of grip in that inch due to frigid temperatures, but presumably that can swap as the temperature rises. How became that for you?
The first lap became rather bit annoying, especially the rear grip. For obvious, it will doubtless be significantly better all around the day. The consistency of the tyre level will doubtless be worse, that’s for obvious, and we’ll prefer to deal with the front tyres. I’m no longer taking off front for the following two races. For obvious, in case you is also at the help of you is also the utilize of the front tyres more and I’m ideal going to prefer to be orderly, per chance smarter than the others if I need to return help. However we’ll peek. The extent is largely amazing right here on the grid and no one makes mountainous mistakes, so it is rarely an effortless job to return help. We now prefer to be focused and are attempting to make the most tremendous we can, searching on what’s occurring all around the inch.
Santi, it’s broad to get dangle of you ever help on the rostrum, you’ve had an up and down season.
Sure, I’m smooth-ecstatic. Congrats to JK for the snatch. I’ve consistently been moderately on the race in qualifying, but on no account made it within the races, so I’m ecstatic to be help on the rostrum. Obviously, it’s ideal one inch and we desire Cyan to grab, so it became upright to grab away a few facets from Gilles because Audi are actually swiftly and can near help. As JK stated, I in point of fact desired to grab, I pushed exhausting from the beginning after which I gave up, he became swiftly on the remaining sector so I will have the ability to also no longer overtake him. However OK, I’m ecstatic to be help, it became a upright inch coming from at the help of. As JK says, it’s annoying, of us don’t make mistakes, so in case you get it within the principle few laps then you indubitably can also be going to be sitting there. Obviously now I will originate P8 I concentrate on within the following inch after which I even get dangle of the likelihood to be within the front, where I originate P3. I will push exhausting obviously to get the snatch, but the principle thing is to get facets for the team.
Gilles, you is also provisionally our rookie champion. If you started the season I narrate you didn’t seek facts from to be elevating this trophy.
Are you obvious, because I did the calculations myself before the inch. So, 100 per cent obvious I’m the rookie champion?
Correct don’t narrate that!
Must you is also in point of fact obvious then I’m in point of fact ecstatic, thanks for that! I trust you! We now get dangle of so many races to switch and this title, it’s some stress off my shoulders. It’s already one thing we’ve and now let’s make a upright third inch, we beginning on pole. Also within the 2d inch we beginning 10th, but at this notice there are alternatives to overtake. The extent is de facto high and as Jean-Karl stated, the fellows don’t make loads of mistakes so it is annoying to pass. Let’s are attempting to make the most tremendous of it and snatch the most of facets.
You’ve stated you know what it is doubtless you’ll maybe maybe also prefer to construct together now sooner than your pole predicament for Glide 3. Can you divulge us on what you is also feeling you make need to make?
Yeah, I’m no longer going to dispute you too noteworthy because there are too many of us listening! I concentrate on I know what to make on the balance of the auto, I felt which path we’ve to switch. I in point of fact feel assured for Glide 3. Also I became in these guys’ slipstream, which doesn’t back, it provides even more understeer. So we know which path to switch and that’s a upright thing for Glide 3.
