Sims bounces back in Berlin

This weekend was a step in the right direction for me, as you could see in qualifying. Super Pole didn’t go as well as we would have liked, and I had to start the race from five places further down the grid due to the penalty I picked up in Monaco. Despite that, I had a good first half of the race. We had very good pace, particularly in the middle of the race, and had plenty of energy at our disposal until the full course yellow phase wiped out the differences in energy reserves. These are the first points for me since Santiago and the first time this season that António and I have both finished in the points, which is good for the team so I have to count this as a very good weekend.
