"I had a strong qualifying, setting a PB and 13th on the grid. In the start, unfortunately, Andanson used my car to slow down into turn 1, as he completely overshot the corner and hit me, sending me into the path of Keersmaekers, who had spun and was across the track. It was impossible to avoid him, and although I didn't lose the front wing, the contact damaged my suspension considerably.
In testing I had a good setup and was very consistent in race pace, but with the car pulling to the right the whole race, it was impossible to be consistent and it made me a few tenths slower a lap. I tried to keep pushing despite the damage, but 12th was all I could do. Without the first-corner incident, it would have still been difficult to score, but at least 9th was possible for sure. Another frustrating race, hopefully my last two races will be better."
