'I'm reasonably happy with the progress we have made today, but you always want to be quicker and have more grip. However as always we will not know where we really are until the end of tomorrow's qualifying.'

'So far, so good.'

'Today's practice was a good beginning to the weekend. The team worked on the race set-up. I'm pleased with the performance of both Mika and David and both made good progress with their work.'
