“Very tough weekend overall but we made big improvements over the weekend and by the end of it we were competitive only 0.7 off lap record and had I started a bit further up the grid I could of been battling well into the top 10. Hope to get engine stronger this week also as we lacked a bit of straight line speed so onwards and upwards”.
