“It was a bit of a shame to lose some laps; we had something with the gearbox, but fortunately we got it checked and went out again. It meant that we were maybe a bit off the rhythm compared to some of the others, but it seemed to be alright and we still got some good laps completed. I think there’s still a lot if improvement we can do, the Mercedes is very quick, but it was okay as a start to the weekend.”
- First Practice Session: Position: 6, Best Time: 1:18.435, Laps: 26
- Second Practice Session: Position: 12, Best Time: 1:17.644, Laps: 36
“The driving was good today, but looking at the time sheets we’ve got some work to do! We got some good references to go by and we need to put some work in tonight – I enjoy driving around here and there are a lot of fans in the grandstands. It seems that we’re close to some of the other teams, so we’ve just got to extract as much from the cars as we can over the weekend.”
