Will Stevens and Roberto Merhi enjoyed a second positive day of running in Bahrain today, which culminated in them qualifying in 18th and 19th places for tomorrow’s 57 lap 2015 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.

Will Stevens #28
“The weekend has been pretty solid for us. The conditions have been a little up and down due to the changing wind and also the track has been pretty dusty due to heavy overnight winds. I think we worked pretty well over the past couple of days to manage the differences and by qualifying we had a pretty good balance. I think there was a little bit more in the car today as I made a small mistake in turn 12, but it feels good for the race so I’m excited to see how we fare tomorrow.”

Roberto Merhi #98
“I’m a little disappointed with my lap as I made a mistake later at turn 4 and that stopped me improving on my second run. Otherwise, I think we can feel happy with the progress we’ve made through the weekend, especially as the track conditions have been evolving so much. The car is in a good place for tomorrow, so I’m looking forward to the race.”

John Booth, Team Principal
“Another very smooth and straightforward day for us. Both drivers felt there was more to come from the car, as they both made small mistakes which lost a bit of time, so that is encouraging. Once again, we’ve enjoyed good reliability and this has been invaluable in helping us to keep pushing forward, one step at a time.”
