Car 15 SEBASTIAN VETTEL, 1st Practice P9, 2nd Practice P3

"The heat in Malaysia is always a surprise, even if you're here for a couple of days before you jump in the car. It's very hot with the suit and everything and, no matter how much you prepare, the first outing is always a bad surprise but, you quickly adapt. Every time you come in to the box it's like you've been in the shower. Fortunately I've got a bag with dry ice in it, which I put next to my balls, so at least they stay nice and cool! Today went well, with smooth running. We ran through our programme, did a lot of laps and got a lot of information about our tyres. There were no major problems with either car, so it was a good day."

Car 14 MARK WEBBER, 1st Practice, P82nd Practice P5

"Today was a lot better for us in terms of reliability than Friday in Melbourne, so it was a big step forward. Both cars ran well and obviously it's a big challenge for the cars around here with the heat, so that's good. We got all of our programme completed in plenty of time. Performance wise, we're not too bad here. We have a bit of work to do tonight, but in general it was a pretty good day for the team and for me."
