You can only ever compare your performance to other race weekends so, relatively, I think we are looking ok. We've done a lot of set-up work today and I am quite happy with everything so we've made good progress. The team brought some new parts to Bahrain and they seem to be working well so thanks to our aero guys for their continuing hard work in developing the car. I am really convinced that we will be able to do something positive at this race and to get the points that the car is worth.
Today didn't go too badly but we are lacking some pace compared to Nico. I'll now de-brief with my engineers to try to find out where I'm losing that time so I can make it up in tomorrow's qualifying. The circuit is getting better and better the more laps we do, which is good. It's also really hot out there, but fortunately it's bearable.
Note: Only Nico Rosberg is running with the team's new aero parts, Kazuki Nakajima will have them for the Spanish GP.
