Sebastian Vettel: "We potentially are a little bit closer here, but you know at the moment it's all guessing."

Daniel Ricciardo (FP1: Position: 3, Best Time: 1:18.506, Laps: 37 /FP2: Position: 9, Best Time: 1:19.779, Laps: 11): "It was a shame we didn’t run so much this afternoon due to the conditions, but if it rains over the weekend then we’ll want to use the tyres, so there was a bit of waiting around, At the end the track still had a few damp patches, so we didn't really learn that much this afternoon but I think the morning went well, so we've just got to try and get the set-up from that. The few laps I did this afternoon felt similar to the morning in terms of car balance and the things we need to work on, so I think the direction we've got to go is pretty clear. If we're going to challenge the Mercs then I think this is the place for it, they don't seem to have one sector at the moment which is blowing everyone away, but obviously it's still early days."

Sebastian Vettel (FP1: Position: 5, Best Time: 1:19.043, Laps: 33 / FP2: Position: 3, Best Time: 1:19.017, Laps: 15): "Obviously we'd love to run in the dry the whole time here, but of course if it’s wet it's the same for everyone. Mercedes were very quick this morning and we see that usually, come Saturday, they are able to pick up their pace, so we'll try to do the same. We potentially are a little bit closer here, but you know at the moment it's all guessing. I think the big advantage on this track would be that there's not that many straights, but we have to wait and see. We were obviously limited today on what we could learn in terms of pace and range, we know that it's quite important to qualify in the front here so if there is a chance then we have to use it."
