Today's conditions were tricky as getting to the end of the race, I struggled to breathe because of the hot temperatures added to the bike's heat, it was challenging. Overall, I've felt good on the bike, and despite the crashes this weekend, we've done a solid job that hopefully will pay off in Japan, as it will be my home Grand Prix.

It's good that I've scored a point; as it's a nice way to finish the weekend and to build something better next week in Japan. At race time, I just tried to get through it because it made no sense to take several risks considering yesterday's crash and today's conditions. I did my job the best I could, and finally, we grabbed a point; I'm always happy to help LCR.
