This afternoon was fairly conclusive, but this morning wasn’t really much good with the weather. It’s hard to say much about the harder tyre, I think the number of pit stops will be the same here in this race as at the last few.”

Mark Webber: (First Practice Session: Position: 20, Best Time: 1:29.473, Laps: 21 / Second Practice Session: Position: 3, Best Time: 1:22.891, Laps: 36): “It looks reasonably tight. We couldn’t have got more out of it today really, the weather made things a bit tricky, but it was a pretty good day overall.

We had a few things to test this morning which we had to move to the afternoon when the weather was better – but it was okay. We still have work to do tonight. It’s a nice grand prix to come to – one of the most popular of the year.”
