“It’s a perfect start of the weekend for me. I worked a lot with my team, and I was able to ride my bike the way I wanted. We worked hard for it. Today, I focused on the front of the bike to improve stability. It’s special for me to race here because I have a new helmet in memory of my father, who passed away four years ago. It holds a special significance. Tomorrow, I will be fighting for pole position and aiming to win the race.”
