"Hockenheim is a difficult circuit, the first of the season where we can go over 340km/h, and it is not so easy to find the right balance between the fast parts of the circuit and the Stadium.Today I found from the start that the car was stable and behaved consistently in both the straight lines and the twisty sections. I am also very satisfied with the performance of the Michelin tyres. Usually on Friday, everybody works in various directions and with different levels of fuel, which affects the laptimes a lot, but being in the top ten today remains a true satisfaction for us."
Luciano Burti "It is my first time here and I had to start with learning the track. The first session went very well, but I think we were a bit confused with set-up choices in the second session. As a result, I was struggling to be faster this afternoon, and even putting new tyres on did not help, which should have been the case. We are working on today's datas and we already know in which direction we have to go way to go, so I feel confident we can do much better than this tomorrow."
"Today's practice day brought us two reasons to be very satisfied : it is the first fast track of the season and our cars appeared to behave well in the different configurations we tested today. We tried simultaneously different options with the two cars and gathered valuable indications to prepare for Sunday's race. The second positive thing is the very good performance of the Michelin tyres here. If weather conditions remain as hot and dry as toda, which we hope, we have real chances to set a good result this weekend."
