It’s disappointing. Not even reach to go to Q2 it’s hard because we were working well, we made steps forward but we cannot improve our lap time. This is a difficult situation. As I said, the feeling is better with the bike, I could do some steps and now I hope that with more time on the bike, like in the warm up and specially on the race, I can build up a better feeling with this pace we have now. It was a really good job from the team. It’s hard that I couldn’t put a good lap time. Tomorrow is a new day and we will keep on fighting and working hard on the bike to get a better result than last week.
