"What kind of situations it can bring the advantage, how big an advantage it will give us, and at which tracks is a bit of a question mark.
"We're happy to have it on the car, and now it all goes pretty smoothly and starts to feel like everything goes pretty automatically without too much thinking about it, and we're using it what we think is the best."
