Today's goal was to analyze the situation and understand how to manage the Sunday race. We've struggled with the rear grip but are doing our best with our package. Tomorrow's race will be long; we'll try to push and fight as much as possible.

I was sliding, and at the maximum angle, a rival got me. It’s been a race incident; it’s part of racing. Despite that, I was a little frustrated with my race pace, as it was difficult to keep the fight against some rivals; I wanted to do more but couldn’t.
