Нико Хюлкенберг:
That was a productive day for us and it was enjoyable to be out there pounding in the laps in the sun. We made good progress with the car even if we had to deal with some indecisive wind which changed its direction between sessions. The track is good to drive and we saw a few people running over the limits on occasion. We learnt a lot and there’s more to come from us tomorrow.
Карлос Сайнц:
It was great to get out there in a Formula 1 car at this circuit where I’ve raced in the past. There seemed to be a lot of traffic out there at times, but we were able to run through a good programme and make steps forward through the day. I’m quite happy with the car but we know we can further improve it for tomorrow. It was great to see all the yellow in the crowd and I’m looking forward to seeing more of this over the next couple of days.
Ник Честър:
It’s always fun coming to a new track and learning it, and it’s even better when it’s a home race for the team. It was a fairly straightforward programme for us today, with a little less experimental work than normal, replaced with more focus on set-up and getting the drivers used to the circuit. The wind changed direction for FP2, but then dropped in intensity so that made things easier with the change of direction and some of the balance issues experienced in the first session. On the short runs we’re not too bad, but we still have some pace to find. On the whole, we were happy with the pace on the long runs with tyre management presenting no surprises. Both drivers reported the track being bumpier than they expected, adding this to the variety of corners meant that getting the balance right is a tricky task here.
