His racing ability is exceptional and he has a lot of experience, so did Vettel or Raikkonen, experienced drivers who know how to take advantage of a format. different, different circumstances. We already saw him in Baku with Fernando, when he smells the blood he throws himself into any hole ".

But if the next short races turn out like this, there is room on the calendar for them, even if it is not possible in all events. "
