Seattle discussed on F1: Beyond The Grid


Forward compared to last year particularly over one lap. Is that how you sit. I definitely feel. I've i've made some big improvements in that area. It was for sure my biggest focus coming into this year to kind of close. That gap down to my teammate. In qualifying from seattle ver. Very good reference to you.

You know you build the rhythm you can improve it more. Get more confidence with the car. And we've seen the car's potential to be in in q..
