EDOARDO MORTARA: "The car was really good in this session, and of course I couldn't be happier with the result. We're proving strong at every circuit this year. This sets us up very well for a strong result tomorrow, the aim of the game being to further extend my lead in the championship.
"We struggled a little in practice this morning, but made some set-up changes that contributed a huge difference to the pace. This morning, I was only fourth quickest, and I knew we could improve a lot. Thanks as always to Signature and Volkswagen for a really terrific car and team."
