"It's a shame how the race in Austin went. I knew I had to win both races to have a chance to fight for the title until the end. Unfortunately, in the first corner in Race 1, I was hit and crashed. I tried to make a comeback, but I lost time overtaking my rivals, and in the end, I finished sixth. Race 2 in Valencia was perfect. I started from the pole position, and I knew I had the best pace. I won, staying in the lead from the beginning to the end. Today, luck was not on our side, but I'm still happy with third place in the Championship! I will try again next year"
