We also brought some updates here and they work fine.Today, the car worked great. For us there were difficult conditions in qualifying it was very hot and windy and the grip level was lower than we expected. In these conditions, our car is working very well, so our lap in the second round was good and we were able to get to the finals, there is a fight for ninth place.Tomorrow we'll be eighth because of a penalty Verstappen, so I think it's a great chance to score points.We know that we still have a deficit on the straights compared to the other teams, and we're probably a little lose in the first round, but after that we will work on holding the position.

Before qualification I didn't use Ul. Yesterday, we worked with other teams, and on Saturday morning turned on the track before to try them out.The incident with Strolla was unexpected and quite close to the accident. I was lucky not to turn around on the grass, that could be a disaster. It would be the end of the training. We went to the second round, which is good, since it was the maximum that we can squeeze out of their car.We strongly tightened and narrowed the gap from seven tenths to two-tenths to the guys ahead, but we still don't really perform well on the home track. I think it has more to do with the tyres, and in this area there's a gap in speed. We need to deal with it. I hope we can give the fans something special tomorrow".
