THE WORD FROM NICK

“Yeah I didn’t have the best day today and that was on me. Wasn’t driving my best and made some errors on my behalf which put me into the wall. Thanks to the boys for getting her back out for the second session.

 

I got some good laps in this afternoon, so I just need to get my confidence up around this tough circuit.

 

We’re straight into it tomorrow with Quali up first and I want to make sure I’m in that shootout”
