“I started from P15, so I thought it was going to be a pretty tough race, but I was able to overtake a lot of riders at the start. Then the Red Flag came, and I knew I was going to restart more towards the front. On the last lap, I was leading as we came out of the straight, so I thought that everybody was going to overtake me, but it didn’t happen. I’m very happy with this win. I didn’t think this first win was going to happen today, but it worked out. I’ve become really confident on the bike, especially with overtaking and qualifying, and my own pace is better than before. Tomorrow, I’ll try to go as fast as today and be first like today.”
