We lost the rear right, very suddenly, so we need to have a look – Pirelli is working on finding out why it happened. Other than that, it was a positive day.

This morning was tricky with a few rain drops and the track was slippery; it’s a lot colder here than Hungary, but that’s Spa and part of this circuit.

This afternoon, we had stable conditions and both of us seemed happy with what we had.”

Mark Webber: (First Practice Session: Position: 19, Best Time: 1:58.929, Laps: 12 - Second Practice Session: Position: 2, Best Time: 1:40.390, Laps: 34): “It’s always tricky here to get the right set up for the whole lap, so we took the opportunity today to try some different ones. We’ll go through it tonight.

We had a pretty good run today but there’s still some performance to find and we need to get the car a bit better balanced in certain conditions. Overall we got good information and it was good to have stable conditions this afternoon.”
