"Today it was quite good. The position on the grid is the best that I have reached in this season and so we are satisfied. I would be even happier if I had been able to ride today's best time more time in a row. I will try to do it in warm up tomorrow. We had some small problems with the bike today; we tried different types of setting and tyres. We will continue with that also tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the race. I do enjoy the track because there are lots of fast and long corners and I like it. We will see tomorrow, but for now we are optimistic."
