here. we went for a inside line, and we consider that was a right
choice. we was means to make adult positions and afterwards benefitted from the
hotheads in front of me – we need to keep a cold conduct during a front.
In terms of pace, we were very, really fast. From 13th to fourth place –
that doesn’t occur any day.”
