According to a projections, 25 kilograms on a dry lane would comment for half a second per lap. And Jamie (Green) was lacking 0.550 seconds for stick position on Sunday. In a dry foe on Sunday, we had surprising tire issues. We have to investigate if that was usually due to a weight or if there were some other reasons as well. Mattias (Ekström) and Jamie extracted a limit underneath these circumstances. It’s frustrating that on Saturday Mattias pitted for his tire change accurately during a wrong moment. That was unequivocally unfortunate. Otherwise he’d have a incomparable advantage now.”
