SERGIO PEREZ - VJM10-02
FP1 1:40.293 P6 24 laps
FP2 1:39.323 P7 33 laps

Sergio: “We had a lot of test items to try on the car today on top of the usual preparations for the weekend. First practice was not very representative of the conditions we will experience in qualifying and the race, but what we saw during second practice makes me feel optimistic. The balance of the car is where I need it and the long run pace is competitive. There is still a little bit of work to do, but we’re starting from a good baseline and if we can improve overnight we should be in a good position tomorrow.”

Pierre Gasly (STR12-01, Car 10)
First Practice Session
Best lap: 1:41.646, pos. 14th, 29 laps
Second Practice Session
Best lap: 1:40.694, pos. 15th, 39 laps
“Overall, it’s been a positive and productive day. We managed to have two trouble-free practice sessions and did plenty of laps, which meant we were able to complete the program as we wanted, which is great. During this afternoon’s FP2, I felt good on the supersofts, but then on the ultra we didn’t manage to improve, which means we need to work on the tyres and try and improve this. Having said that, there are also many positive aspects to take from today so, all in all, a good start to the weekend and hopefully we can make a step forward tomorrow for qualifying.”
