“We had a positive Friday. We struggled a bit with the heat in FP1, but in the afternoon we were fast again, so I’m quite happy with that. Our pace is good, although tomorrow we need to take a step forward in that regard. The wind will play an important role in qualifying, so we will see what we are capable of doing on Saturday. As always, the team and I will give our one hundred percent.”
