I can’t wait to start testing, get back on track and prepare for my second year with the team. I had a good break, I relaxed and recovered after an intense season. I feel fit, we worked hard during the break, improving the car and analyzing my first season. We’ve made improvements and I’m looking forward to comparing ourselves to the other teams. Our aim for the tests is to prepare ourselves as best as possible for the start of the season, so as to start with a solid base in Mexico City and build on this for a new successful campaign.

It’s an amazing feeling to be ready to drive the car again, the last time I was on track was in Rome, so I’m very excited for next week. I will have the opportunity to test and help the team with some small changes and improvements, so when I return to the simulator I will have fresh feedback from the real car. Our goals in Valencia are to collect more data, accumulate mileage and continue to help prepare for Season 10. We are preparing as best we can for the start of the year and I am happy to be able to help the team.
