Then Daniel explained that the team has always been good to him, no matter the circumstance..
“So, I am glad we’re making progress. And I feel a part of it which is important as well for me and I guess my growth as a driver. The team haven’t shut me out with anything. I’ve been doing simulator and all of it. So, it’s been really good to work with them”
