Our telemetry showed that the tires were seriously damaged. The rate has fallen, and it could end up either gathering or, at best, an extra pit stop.It was a tense moment, but Valtteri had passed the test. The pace on the damaged tyre was pretty high. Was the sector where he lost time and was winning. Overall, he managed to find the rhythm that brought him the victory".
