Sebastian Vettel:

"I wasn’t so happy with the car this morning and Mercedes were quick, but in the afternoon we were in better shape. We’ll see, but so far I am happy.

"To be clear about yesterday and the GPDA meeting: the general agreement was that we’re happy Pirelli bought a new specification of tyre for this event and want to thank them for their flexibility and reaction times – they were able to find a solution in only a couple of days."

The circumstances that we raced under in Silverstone were not what we can accept, but I don’t think we will see those issues again.”

Mark Webber: “It was okay today and we had dry weather, which was good – it meant we could get our runs done on both compounds and the new tyres seem okay. Pirelli have done what they can and gone back to tyres they know work here. It’s impossible to tell how they will affect the performance of the car – but it feels comfortable so far.”
