As another pilot told me, you don’t teach an old monkey to do grimaces, and that’s kind of the reputation of his whole career in Europe. We’re quickly learning his reputation here. If the race direction don’t want to do anything, then they won’t do anything, but when we get him out, they would better not do anything.

If there is no one in front, we can try a different trajectory, but there we were all following each other so it was quite difficult. We touch a little here, then there we touch again. It’s IndyCar, it’s wheel against wheel. I braked late, like him, and he had a little more grip on the outside, I went a little far in the corner. But it was a small touch and it was fine, » he said. -he explains.
