Sergio Perez: "We can be satisfied with the amount and quality of work done today.”
Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez made the most of today’s practice sessions in preparation for Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix.
Sergio Perez - VJM07-02 - (FP1: 1:39.102 - P9 - 21 laps / FP2: 1:35.802 - P10 - 40 laps): “Today was positive; we managed to complete our programme and we're quite happy with the car, especially on the prime tyre. I was able to complete some long runs and that will give us plenty to analyse tonight. The track temperature and conditions change a lot between the late afternoon and the evening, and it's something we were expecting. We will keep working to improve the car for tomorrow, but we can be satisfied with the amount and quality of work done today.”
Robert Fernley, Deputy Team Principal: “Another solid day of practice with both cars getting through our programmes without any significant concerns. It was good to see Sergio complete so many laps given the difficulties we had in Malaysia on his car and he seemed very comfortable today. Nico also made good progress and we were encouraged by the competitive long run pace. So I think we are in reasonably good shape going into the weekend.”
