FREE PRACTICE

Chassis 03
10th 23 laps

"Today the track was not dry for very long. The asphalt was very slippery but considering that all drivers performed under the same weather and track conditions, I feel pretty satisfied with today's outcome. On a damp track the car behaved well but we must improve our car's set up work in the wet because the car was difficult to drive under these weather conditions. Due to the sudden changes of the weather conditions, tomorrow the strategy is likely to play a more crucial role rather than to set a fast lap, which means that it is far more important to take to the track at the right moment."

"In the past few days I have said that Silverstone's venue would be very difficult and in fact I had a Friday's session fairly troubled. If it rains tomorrow as today, we will not have an ordinary qualifying session where we need to concentrate especially on the strategy. Today's work was good and data will be added to all the information we gathered during last week's tests."
