ďThat wasnít too bad today. I think tyres are always a bit of a challenge around this track, particularly with the softs, they seem to wear on the front left. Turn one is quite bad and turn 13, coming onto the back straight; you do see marbles around the lap, but I think thatís just the nature of the circuit. Our long run looked pretty good and we did more laps than we thought we would, so letís see how we go tomorrow and Sunday.Ē

ďWe didnít have any major issues today, so it was good in terms of testing. The track was very green; I think Formula One were the only cars running on the circuit today. Thereís a lot for us to do, for me especially as Iím not yet where I want to be, but we made some progress. Tyre graining was average today, but I think it was the same for the others also; Iím sure it will get better as the weekend goes on. If itís dry then the circuit ramps up and if itís wet then it resets every time.Ē
