I won’t lie, it used to be one of my least favorite tracks, but when I returned here for my third start, I felt as if I got the hang of this kind of track. I was really happy with my sixth-place finish in the spring, but I think I can do much better this time. We’re bringing a brand-new chassis and I was very impressed with it after our test day last week. My team has worked very hard and deserves another win. I think this weekend should be it.
