Mario Domínguez - Driver

"The car was definitely getting better by the end of the qualifying session this afternoon so I definitely think we are on the right track for tomorrow. We know there are a number of things that we can still improve so we'll be working hard tonight to make decisions about what the best options are. We got some very good data from our tests here earlier this year and we put in a really good time on the last day we tested. But the track has changed since February and it doesn't always react the same way. That's the real challenge - trying to figure out what will work now."
