No. 2 / Comment Takahashi Yuki

”It was very funny race, lap time was very fast and it was difficult to stay there.

But I tried harder, and at the beginning of the race I stayed little bit calm and from middle to end I tried untill my maximum and Marcues finally arrived, he was so fast and also I had made a little mistake then a little bit fiight with the other guys.

Anyway this second position is very good for us, I want to say thank you so much for my sponser and my team ans I will try hard like this also next race.”
