Hello everyone!

This past weekend the 4th race weekend of the season was held in Sachsenring in Germany. Is a fun circuit with changes of elevation and a variety of corners.

On Thursday free practice and qualifying session is disputed, free practice went not very well as I did not know the circuit and was lost and did not know where to stop or accelerate.

The main objective of the first free practice was to get experience and good feeling with the circuit, ultimately ending in the 15 position.

In the afternoon we went out for the second free practice, we went to the track and could only get 2 laps because it started raining and we had to come to pit-lane. After we changed to rain tyres the track dried quickly and we no longer had time to make good the qualifying times.

Something unexpected happened, It started to rain a lot and because of rain Qualifying had to be canceled. I was llef with the 15th position on the grid for this race.

I did my best start of the year and from 15th got past 4 in the first corner, I felt strong on the Sachsenring and started to battle in a group contesting 9 position.

In the second race I did not go start as fast as in the first but also went well. The second race was different. The second race I ran alone without group until I finished.

So I got a 7th last weekend and learned many things. I think that I'm not that far from the first and the next race in Brno I will do much better.

See you there

Marc
