Iím pretty confident that we can do better in the race, certainly compared to our pace in Monaco. Weíve put in a lot of work on race performance and I hope we can translate that tomorrow. Itís good to have saved a set of new options as well.

We have developed our set-up in the right direction over the weekend, and the long runs looked quite good this morning, so we should be ok in the race.
