"It was very tough, as the top five were committed to the long game and we wanted to play the same game with them," said Nyck. "But obviously the drivers behind us were kind of racy, and when you then get drawn into this sort of fight, it makes it difficult to keep up with the front-runners. I missed one of the activation zones for attack mode, which cost me a bit of track position."
In the end, however, he was able to fight his way back up to P6 in an exciting final segment and also set the fastest lap of the race. "All in all, the team were very brave and committed," said Nyck. "We kept faith with each other and went for it. Ultimately, it played out well and we got back into P6 where we had started from. As a bonus, we even posted the fastest lap, so overall I am satisfied with our day. I don’t think we were quite quick enough, so from that perspective, this was a decent result."
