In addition, I add that although his times were not bad, he is very concerned about the performance of his tires. “We did not do so badly in the qualifying simulation, but we lost something and I think we can do better. But, like I said, keeping the tire temperatures under control will be a problem. Today I had to slow down to be able to do a decent second lap, ”he said annoyed.
Finally, he repeated his discomfort at the drawing and commented that situations experienced with traffic on the track border on dangerousness. “It is a new track for everyone and quite complicated, it is honestly not the most exciting one I have run on, it is narrow and very short, there is always a lot of traffic and you have to be very careful, in addition to keeping the radio open to get directions. In the second sector we have a series of blind curves that are also dangerous in certain situations, “he said.
