“I can’t wait to race in Barcelona. I am very excited because this is a track that I like, on which I have done well in the past and where we had the chance to do two tests that gave us very positive indications. We have to work well from Friday and always stay focused so as not to make mistakes and in order to get the best result. The clash at Magny-Cours? After seeing the footage many times, my thoughts do not change and there is nothing more we can do about it. I’ve already said what I had to say so now we just have to look ahead.“
