large interjection go to BMW Team RMG for that too. On tip of that, it was

go. Then customarily usually fine-tuning is compulsory to urge in minor
details. Everything usually fits – and we feel totally during home.”


What are your goals for a subsequent races?

racing, and we need to continue in a same approach with this momentum. No
