"Did three laps in Qualifying. Each one was a personal best after a personal best so that was good. I was a bit surprised to have been 0.6 seconds off pole as I thought I would be closer. The race began and I almost ran into the back of the leaders into turn one as I was a bit nervous. I held my P3 nicely and was pulling away from 4th place. 2nd place made a mistake on lap 4 and I took the position. At this point I was around 10 seconds behind the leader. I closed the gap to 6 seconds when the leader made his first stop. As I was one-stopping I led for 5 laps. When I came into the pits I rejoined in 3rd, right behind 2nd place. A few laps later I made the move to overtake and took the position nicely. I was 20 seconds behind the leader as he made his 2nd and final pitstop. He rejoined only 3 seconds ahead of me and for the final 9 laps he was slowly pulling away from me. I am happy with my podium though."
