Red Bull Canadian GP Friday Practice Report

Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve


1st Practice P16, 2nd Practice P2

“I had an incident this morning. I lost the rear, but by the time I hit the wall I had low speed, so the crash was quite mild. There wasn’t much damage, so we could fix the car and get back out this afternoon.

McLaren and Ferrari look strong here, although I haven’t seen all the times from practice yet. For us, I’m happy with the car’s balance and how it performs, so we will see. It’s a special circuit here, it’s quite rough with the kerbs and chicanes, but I like it. The target is to win, but it’s a long weekend and a lot of things can happen. It’s important to finish and do your best, whatever that is.”

“We were a bit compromised with the red flags at the end of P2, so we could have had a smoother end to the final session, but it wasn’t too bad. We tried different fuel loads today and now we just need to chip away and get the car a bit quicker. It’s a tricky venue here and we might have some different weather conditions thrown into the mix over the next 24 hours.”
