It has been a very hard day because after trying this new chassis in Jerez we had higher expectations. The first train has gone quite well because the track was half wet and I under these conditions does not go well, but the return was not bad and feelings either. But in the second we've tried some things in the electronics and he was not feeling opening gas. Chassis think it's going well, but with the bluntness of the engine I have not found comfortable. Tomorrow will we go with what we had and certainly that she is the spin.
