“Today has been quite different to yesterday. We improved the lap time, which is a good point. Everyone was very close today. Apart from this, we managed to do some decent work on the bike, we kept focused more on the long-runs and how the race should look like; tyre-wise and also setting-wise, we adapted the bike a lot – not to do a fast lap, but to have a fast pace. Overall, I felt quite strong, I finished the session with a good lap time with a very used tyre. Right now, our position doesn’t really reflect our job and what we did today, but it was not the main focus. We have plenty of opportunities tomorrow to try to put in a fast lap and we’ll be concentrated on tomorrow.”

“We improved, but we are still quite far. It has been a tough second day here. We tried to change many things to improve my feeling on the brake and especially on the front part of the bike. On the rear, we just tried the soft tyre. To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed of myself because I was expecting more, but there seem to be something that stops us from a big step. Anyway, we keep on working hard, try to understand more and I want to refresh for tomorrow, as it is the last day before the start of the season.”
