Today’s Sprint has been intense, but we kept a decent pace considering the general situation. I could have done better initially, but I wanted to avoid mistakes and that's why I lost time at the beginning. Tomorrow, we will have another opportunity to try and fight for the points.

It's been a tricky Sprint. I had some difficulties at some corners of the circuit, and we've struggled with the rear grip. We want to apply some modifications to take a step ahead of tomorrow's race.
