You seemed to be comfortable in the car already this morning.
-Yes, I had some good practise runs. And the qualfying was the highlight of course.
What do you think about your qualifying lap?
-It was ok, I could have been better on the line. But I think it was entertaining to watch at least, I had a lot of angle.
