“It has been a positive weekend overall! I’m happy with today’s race, although I struggled to manage the tyres towards the end. We still need to analyse everything in order to keep learning and improving. We’re working in the right direction, and I truly want to thank the team for their tireless work”
Adrián Fernández
“It was a good race! The feeling has improved considerably in comparison to yesterday’s qualifying. We found something that helped me to improve in the fast corners, and I felt strong in the overtaking. I’m going to train a lot during this break, already looking forward to Silverstone!”
