ESMEE'S RACE REVIEW
“Overall, I’m very pleased with how the weekend has gone. I’ve felt really good in the car all weekend and have been finding performance in every session. Yesterday was a good confidence boost which gave me an extra edge in qualifying this morning. I was determined to improve on yesterday’s starting position so P11 on the timesheets and P10 on the final grid was a real positive. My race pace was quite good and we were able to stay with the cars ahead of us quite comfortably, especially after the pit stop. I gave it my all to try and get past Daniel [Juncadella] but it wasn’t easy as we all know how difficult it can be to overtake at this track. Once again I’d like to say a huge thank you to the team for giving me a brilliant car, I can’t wait to get to the Nürburgring in a couple of weeks time!”
