“Thanks to Russian Time for this chance. I’m glad to be back in GP2, even if is very different compared to my last race in 2011. I had good feeling with the car, the most powerful I ran in that moment. I had the chance to see for the first time Pirelli tyres, but now are very different and the car as well. Technically the car is similar to Super Formula, even if we run on Bridgestone. I had already the chance to run in this cir-cuit in 2010 and 2011, with GP2 will be nice to be back”.
