The time we set was a surprise today, I got a good lap in, but I don’t think it’s completely representative. We seem to be quick, but I think Mercedes will be very strong in qualifying tomorrow.

I think Turn 10 is the best solution we have with the space that’s available.”

Mark Webber (First Practice Session: Position: 2, Best Time: 1:47.420, Laps: 20 - Second Practice Session: Position: 2, Best Time: 1:44.853, Laps: 30): “We got most of the work done today that we planned to. It’s an easy venue to not get what you want, but in the end I think we’ve got a reasonable set-up.

We’ve got work to do on the long run and also on the short run, you can’t neglect that. We won’t count our chickens yet, but it was a smooth day. Turn 10 is better now I think.”
