“Pretty awful day, collected in somebody else’s mess for the second race in a row now and it ruined our day. Got a puncture on Lap 1 after getting hit in the rear which forced us to pit early. Luckily, we were able to pass some guys and we still made a little bit of a result out of it with 13th, but overall it was not the day we wanted.”
