over a radio. As a result, we usually did one drifting path though we could
not have matched a times during a tip anyway. It is a shame, as we
showed via a preparations for this foe what a cars are
able of. Some of a rivals softened massively in qualifying. We
will now concentration on a prolonged race.”

set a fastest path times.”

we will sojourn certain and see what we can do tomorrow and on Sunday.”
