"It was a difficult start because I was caught up in the bunch. When La Mazza spun his car ran into the side of mine. I drove one lap trying to work out how bad the damage was and when I realised everything was okay I stepped up the pace until I found myself in sixth".
Sixth position means "championship points. In Race 2 I will have to make a comeback as I will be starting from last on the grid. Luckily, I will have a new set of tyres on the car".
