Valtteri Bottas:
It was a really interesting day, trying out the new Pirellis and discovering the differences between this year's and next year's tyres. I could really feel the differences and it was nice to get the feel now rather than next year. We tested all kinds of compounds and learned a lot out of all of them. I myself learned a great deal about the driving style with these new tyres. Now I'm looking forward to get some holidays.
