But I in actuality private the yellow cap and I obtained’t refuse it! In my honest we tried to construct the finest we are able to in speed two. Attila defended in actuality neatly. I precise tried a pair of times, but after the tyre puncture in speed one I didn’t desire to ranking any dangers and risk another DNF, so we are able to be contented with P2. We showed a sturdy tempo and now we are going to appreciate at MotorLand Aragón. Main the championship after two rounds is somewhat fine, so let’s assist centered.

Q:

That’s a extremely stunning Goodyear #FollowTheLeader jacket, I’m very jealous!

NM:

Initially, congrats to Attila. I maintain it’s a honest motive in Hungary to celebrate this day because he did an improbable job. Pointless to narrate, a shame for Tiago but in the highest it is how it is. The important thing is we also managed to construct a tidy speed, which was as soon as also my understanding in the predominant one! But I didn’t in actuality prepare to construct that. But in the highest for me it’s a honest corrupt to form self belief since the auto was as soon as working enormous in the speed. Happy with the rostrum and very, very contented with how we approached the speed weekend. We managed to enhance the auto session by session and in the highest it’s a actually very prolonged time for me no longer being on the rostrum and to come support support it’s an unprecedented feeling.

Q:

How construct you feel the auto is going to glorious in Aragón?

NM:

I don’t know because it’s the third speed so we’ll likely private some compensation weight that can come into play. For me I in actuality don’t maintain in regards to the championship. I in actuality want to form self belief since the predominant couple of races weren’t in actuality ultimate for me. I tranquil maintain we private a honest kit, likely no longer to procure races every speed weekend but I desire to achieve solutions. For me I’m contented with P3 and I’d had been contented with P5, P6 or P7 in speed one because for me this invisible solutions-scoring finishes will salvage the adaptation at the highest. My purpose for the rest of the season will most certainly be to construct practical and tidy races and then to achieve solutions. It’s most no longer at risk of repeat the place we are going to have the opportunity to be in Aragón, but I in actuality private a honest feeling so I’m confident that we are able to construct at some level of the highest 10.

Q:

Tiago, there are no phrases. That was as soon as incredibly putrid fortune. How are you?

And for the chief, support in the lead! But I’d private latest a particular formulation clearly. I had a honest originate and Esteban had a question, but I was as soon as in actuality aiming for a honest first lap and first braking. But he made my existence more straightforward. After which all the things was as soon as going neatly – too neatly. So it was as soon as no longer supposed to be, however the championship is prolonged and the honest thing is we private a sturdy kit, we private a honest automobile. Pointless to narrate the Balance of Performance will originate to come support into play, on the choice hand it was as soon as important to achieve all these solutions. It’s a extremely miserable, lifeless mechanical failure cherish this, it’s in actuality irritating. It’s no longer acceptable nearly at this level of championship, but anything can happen and also you cannot blame anybody. I’m very disappointed and pissed off, on the choice hand it’s no longer the predominant time for me and my profession. I’m sure the next day I will private forgotten about it and precise level of curiosity on the subsequent races. At any time when we are going to have the opportunity to be heavy this is when this would be important to achieve honest solutions and as I talked about the championship is tranquil prolonged and these guys are neatly aware that except the old couple of races nothing will most certainly be made up our minds. The honest thing is we are able to all fight and we’ll assist that to the highest. For tonight this would be a laborious one to swallow and accept. The following day will most certainly be another day.
