Pedro de la Rosa
"The conditions were obviously not ideal today, but overall things went well for us, and we were able to complete all the work we had on the programme for today. However, we hope to get in some more laps in dry conditions because we still have a lot of work to do. The weather forecast is not very good for tomorrow, so we have to make the most of every dry window we get."

Thomas Hunsicker
"The day was dominated by ever-changing weather conditions. We were able to use all the tyre specifications - wet, intermediate and dry - and worked on optimising the set-up for the various tyres as well as for different fuel levels. In addition, we completed some systems work. The car ran reliably all day."

What comes next
Tomorrow, Thursday, Pedro de la Rosa will be at the wheel again before Kamui Kobayashi takes over for Friday and Saturday.
