I was able to make steady starts in the three races and felt my improvement after the previous round. However, I keenly felt the importance to take pole position in qualifying. Overtaking is very difficult at a high-downforce track like Suzuka, in contrast to Fuji where overtaking is relatively easy and I took a win.
We have been having difficulty in qualifying due to my mistakes and adjustment to changing track conditions. So I will concentrate on simulator and training to take pole position in the next round at Autopolis.
To my supporters,
Thank you for your support as always. Although I was able to make a podium finish in round 5, but my expectation is much higher. I will be stronger and look forward to showing my performance in the next round.
