“It was a lot of fun, to be honest. It was a really good day, I felt really comfortable in the car and enjoyed every second of it. I must say the track was really nice to drive; there was a lot of grip, and I began to feel my neck and my arms by the end of the day with all that grip, but the track was a lot of fun to drive. It has everything, and it was a good track to do the test there. It was tough at the end, but I think it’s like that for all drivers for their first time in this car.”
“I really enjoyed it, and like I’ve always said, I can really see myself doing the [IndyCar] series, but I’m not the one deciding that. That’s up to the team, and I don’t know what comes next. We’ll talk, see what they think, see where things lead, and then decide where to go from here.”
