Quote at the launch:"We cannot say we will be the best, but for sure we will be very well prepared with the new car in terms of mileage and experience. We've tried to solve all the problems and get ready for the first race. Now we're doing very well, and it feels good,
although there's still a lot of work to be done in the run-up to the first race and beyond. I am optimistic and confident."
