“It was an interesting day. It’s a track that traditionally doesn’t suit us, but we were happy with the car today. McLaren look very quick in particular and the ones to beat this weekend, but it’s very difficult to judge on a Friday as so many factors are involved. We had no problems today, so we’re satisfied.”

“That was pretty good. We’ve got a lot to go through regarding downforce and gear ratios, it’s a pretty tricky venue in that regard. The two different tyre compounds are behaving pretty well, we did most of our work in P2 on the option tyre. We re-adjusted a few things following the camber setting guidelines for this race. Set-up here can be interesting, as it’s a compromise between grip for corning and straight-line speed. Seb and I ran different programmes today, so we’ll put that info together tonight.”
