finish a extensive exam programme. we finished a second day with
a second-fastest time, that was a large positive. It was critical to
get behind behind a circle and get copiousness of laps of contrast underneath my
belt. We are apparently wakeful that we need to urge a performance

as rival as probable this season.”

operative and Stefan Reinhold’s outfit. we am now looking brazen to the
subsequent exam in Hockenheim, and wish that we have good continue there too.”
