In the afternoon, our work was made even more difficult by the wind, because these race cars are very susceptible in this respect. It wasn’t ideal because of that, but I’m relatively satisfied. We have a fast car for the race and a decent starting point, so to speak,”He added for colleagues from German television RTL.
