"I'm really happy and would like to thank everyone who supports me, my team, the mechanics and Jean-Marc Fortin, as well as the organisers, who really know their stuff. I'm on the podium, but what really matters is that the whole field got to enjoy the race in Saudi Arabia. I'm also pleased for all the spectators who watched us and, of course, happy with our first podium spot. God willing, we won't budge from there!"
