"It's the first stage I have tried to drive fast! We were very stupid on the previous one and we had to push on this one. I wouldn't say it was a great stage, we had a lot of understeer so I struggled with that, but we are here. It's a long season but it's a positive start - at least we have scored some points already not like the previous three years."
