“The last race in Mugello was good because after a long time without racing, I saw that I haven't lost the ability to go fast," he said ahead of the upcoming encounter at the Sachsenring. “I have to regain fitness and this week I have worked hard.
“I've always had very good races at the Sachsenring and it's good to get to a track where you know you can do well. Contrary to Mugello, Germany is all almost left-hand corners and this must help me.
“Last year, we had a great race there and hopefully we can do a good job again during practices, hope nothing goes wrong and come out with a good chance for the race."
