However, he did improve his time in the final practice session, but not as much as he wanted to as he came seventh on the timesheet. And, later in the day, he found himself in the same place after the final round of qualifying.

The 23-year-old is hoping to bring his A-game for tomorrow’s race and is hoping to gain some positions as the race progress. He remains optimistic about earning some good points for the Maranello-based team as they fight to get ahead in the Constructors’ Championship.
