“It was an incredibly hard race because I just saw so many riders crashing in the first few laps…there was a lot of crashes and a lot of slow riders. There were also some riders who changed to wet tyres very fast. And I was like ‘why are you guys changing the tyres still had a lot of grip.’ So I just tried and keep out, hoping the rain would stop so I could finish on the podium. In the beginning, I wanted to switch to wet tyres, but then I just missed the entry of the box two times because I was too fast in the corner before the pit entry. So I just thought it was now too late and I decided to stay on slicks and see what I could do. It was difficult because the race felt like ours. The last five laps felt really long. And I was just hoping to finish the race. It went quite good and could bring the victory.”
