¨I`m very happy with the car that the team gave me. I liked it, it goes very well in all the circuit and the set up is fantastic. I` ll try to make a good start and take the first position, but always taking care the car for the race of Sunday. The circuit has curves of third and fourth gear with straights not too longs, but with some places to pass. Is one of the circuit I like more because is complete and I have a lots of laps here¨said Esteban on Friday.
