On the last lap I knew I had to attack because I wanted to get to the points. So, somehow, I had nothing to lose in that sense, and I gave everything. It worked! And despite being just a point, it’s very significant for us. Many thanks to the team for its job!

I lost a lot of time at the beginning of the race. From that moment on, I tried to follow my strategy. I managed to handle the tyre wear, which was positive, and at the end of the race, I felt I had something else to push; but it was tricky as my rivals didn’t make it easy. In any case, we are always closer to the bike we’d like to ride; we are working hard
