In the start I believe I didn`t jump. What might hapened is that was a confusion because others driver did jumped the start. In the first race I passed Donoso in the start, but the car wasn`t all good and Donoso and Valles passed me. After that I decided to stay in track and complete the race¨, commented the 17 years old driver.
