“After the first five races I could never have predicted I would be back at the sharp end of the title fight so soon.

“But we’re starting to have cleaner weekends as a team and are showing real strength as a unit — coming through with results even when things aren’t perfect.

“I can’t wait to get to Baku, experience another new country and see what we can do on the track.

“There’s never been a doubt in my mind over what I can do in this car.”
