Today's performance was not what we aimed for. However, I'm not disappointed with our job during the Sprint, as I managed to get some positive feelings on the bike. We'll try again tomorrow!

Today, we noticed some small improvements, which is positive. I'm disappointed about today's performance on the Sprint, but the situation was demanding because of the tyre wear, and I didn't have the best feeling. In any case, now we've got some important data to prepare for tomorrow's race.
