I always enjoy the night races because they have a very different feel and I think it’s good to have them at the end of the year as it’s a nice change. For the first race It is a track that we know very well, but it is always hard on the tires, so it will be important to find a good set-up to solve it. ”

As a team we were also very strong and considering how well we started the weekend, it’s a bit frustrating to get out. with so few points, but there are a lot of positives from Turkey. It was a strong weekend and I’m sure we’re heading in the right direction.
