I think that it would be too much to say that we are satisfied with today's result, but it's definitely not something to be mad about either. The expectations at the moment are just unbelievably high and we must not let this fact lead to only see the negative aspects on this fourth place.
In the end, it's important what you expected from yourself. We knew that today would be a hard and tight one and therefore we wanted to take the things as they come. Staying calm and as relaxed as possible. That's the main reason why we're not devastaded, but more focusing on the positive sides. I can assure anyone that there is a lot of proof out there that races were and can be won from a P4 starting place and that's exactly what we'll aim for in the race.
The reason why we didn't do better is easily found. Q1 was a bit hard because we struggled with the partly wet track, Q2 was perfect, just like the car – and then there was Q3. Not only did I make this small mistake which led me off track, I also think that I was a bit too shy while racing. But don't worry, that won't happen again tomorrow – I promise.
Right now we're already on our way back to the hotel. There's not much left to do, we had our final meeting, so our only job for this night is to get as much sleep as possible and recharge our batteries. I can't wait for tomorrow and I'll hope you'll be there to cheer for us. We're thankful for each and every one of you.
