Personally, I've been doing work on the simulator to try out different things and have also done some aero tests in the car to see how certain things are working, so it'll be interesting to see how we now perform when we get to Barcelona.
We expect to be challenging for the podium again there and I think that is more than a realistic goal for us. However, it is important that we work hard and don't get complacent as it is very easy in F1 to make a mistake that can cost you a lot or you can have a technical problem like Alonso had in Bahrain with his DRS. Luckily, we haven't suffered with any mechanical issues so far this season and we hope that that continues.
So far this season, we've seen four good races with a lot of battles on track and three different winners in Kimi, Fernando and Sebastian. It is enjoyable for me to see these battles close up and my dream is to join them on track as soon as possible and I am working hard to make that dream a reality.
I'm doing the best that I can to help the team to improve, and to improve myself as a driver so that when the opportunity comes along, I am able to race with those guys and show that I'm worthy of my place in F1.
With that, it's back to work.
Until next time,
