"Unfortunately, it stopped raining just before qualifying, so the track gradually dried out, which really put drivers in Group 1 on the back foot. In the end, everyone in the fourth group went through to the Super Pole session. From the back of the grid, we didn't have it easy right from the start."
In the first half of the race, Nyck initially managed to fight his way through the extremely tightly packed field to within reach of the points, ultimately crossing the finish line in 16th position after 30 laps. "We got away well," said Nyck, "but then I made a mistake, and we didn't always make the right calls at the right time either. All in all, it was a tough race."
