"It was good that we had a trouble free day and were able to get on with our work, even if we knew we were not going to be quick enough, as we are lacking some development parts, which at this early point in the season always make a big difference. I was fairly happy with the balance of the car on the super soft tyre, apart from a bit too much oversteer at high speed. Overall, it's not too bad, but we will do the best we can even if I think we will struggle to make it into Q2 tomorrow."

First Practice Session
Best lap 1.29.499, pos.19th , 21 laps
Second Practice Session
Best lap 1.27.479, pos.16th, 36 laps

Sebastien Buemi (STR4-01)

"My first F1 practice session and I had a lot of new things to learn and to deal with. It was not too bad, we tried various changes and improved the car lap by lap. The second session got off to quite a good start, but later we had some difficulty with finding the right set up. Given our lack of testing with this car, today was like a test session which we used to learn more about the car. It's my first time at this circuit and I still need to get used to it and I learned a lot, but there is still plenty to do to improve tomorrow."

First Practice Session
Best lap 1.28.785, pos.15th, 27 laps
Second Practice Session
Best lap 1.28.076, pos.20th , 33 laps
