I AM VERY EXCITED!

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, after the pole, I was really psyched up. The single lap has a great value for a driver, because it's where you see who has something more, who is the fastest. By considering the level of the WTCC this has been an unexpected satisfaction and I still struggle to understand what happened today.

The victory in race one is a merit that has to be shared among all BMW Team Italy-Spain's men, that since Thursday's practice did an excellent job. This is not false rhetoric: it has been a triumph of the team, including my team-mate Felix Porteiro, with whom I worked a lot in defining the basic setup according to what we did last year.

I am convinced that this success will strengthen further the confident climate within our team: the awareness of being able to count on a driver that can make the difference can be a motivation more for the team, therefore being the ending point of an exceptional team pushes me to give my best every time I get on track.

It is very hard to describe my feelings in these hours: we did not win thanks to the reverse grid or because someone got retired. We simply won because we were the best. And, considering the value of our opponents, we cannot be but extremely proud of this.
