I was ready to fight, and I managed to make good overtakes, but the bike's limitations were there, and I lost at some points of the track. We are trying to apply some changes to be at the level of the competitors. We'll try again tomorrow.

We’d done some modifications on the bike’s setup, and I felt better. During the Sprint, I did my best and kept a consistent pace. Let’s see if we can take a step further ahead of tomorrow’s race.
