THE PRESSURE OF BOTTAS

“Obviously, there is a big difference between us and the third classified (1 second with Verstappen), but Valtteri (Bottas, his partner in Mercedes) always pushes me to the limit. Valtteri has done a great job, but I have changed some things ”.

COMMITTED A SPIN IN Q2

“This track is great, the wind that comes before you then goes to the tail. I have also made a spinning top. Nor am I used to running without an audience. Everything is empty, you usually hear sirens. There is a different energy, but we miss the fans. ”

MESSAGE TO FANS

“We hope you are all happy with this little comeback we’ve made. I want to thank the whole team, the factory that is working to improve. I am very proud to be a part of all this ”.
