It was a surprise to have won the first race, but I took advantage of my opponents' mistakes, and then, with a good car and good pace, we managed to take first place. Very happy to have achieved a victory in front of the Argentine public. It's really cool to run here, everyone knows us, they ask for photos. The race track is also packed.
