The car was very good, very strong all day. I don't think anything was missing, the only thing missing was time. 4th place is ok, puts us to 9th tomorrow, but it's not ideal because it all came down to the last lap. The track was surprisingly dry, maybe drier than I expected, with hindsight I should have taken more risks. It didn't come down to the pace, or the car, it came down to the driver, and the three drivers that were in front of me took more risks. The later you crossed the line, the better it was. For tomorrow everything can happen, maybe there will be some rain, it will be significantly cooler and it will matter how you look after the tyres. We are in a good place and it is a shame for the result, because I thought it could be a good session today. The car was really good to drive and I thought we could be closer to the top. About the kerbs, it's clear that you'd better not touch them, and I think for next year we need to find a solution, but for tomorrow there's nothing that can be done.
