Let's go quickly through the 2016 season. When did you feel you had arrived in the club of the top guys?
After Silverstone. In Qatar I was already strong, but I had no experience. Looking back, what we were missing then, my team and I, was experience. At the end of the Silverstone race, our electronics worked much more accurately, the management of the races was much better, we had learned how to control the tire consumption, we were much more efficient in qualifying and in the races. It was all consequence of having accumulated experience. Austria for example was an important race in this sense. I spent most of the race behind Marc and Valentino and could see things that helped me a lot.
