It wasn't a great session and it was naturally disappointing. We were optimistic at the beginning, but we couldn't get things together. and it was therefore a performance that went below expectations. We didn't do everything we had to do today, and it will be difficult to recover in the Sprint, but we will try.

I don't want to share what we said with Toto, since these are aspects that remain between us. For sure we will continue to work and see how this weekend goes on. "
