He adds, "We’ve made some good progress. We’ve still got more work to do – it’s not like we can let-up now – but another trophy and a lot of points for us, which is pretty awesome. A big thanks to the whole team and everyone back at the factory as well for all the work they’re putting into it."
He concludes, "It’s paying off, and I hope this is motivation to work even harder and keep bringing improvements."
