âIn FP2 the car immediately felt better after weâd made a couple of setup and parts changes, and the hotter track conditions helped the tyres come in more quickly so my first run was good. We went onto the supersofts and waited for a gap in the traffic but then on my quick lap the red flags came out when Romainâs accident damaged the barriers. That was bad timing as I was definitely on my fastest lap of the day and I think weâd have been looking at a time around the mid-1.17s, more representative of our real pace today. But, FP1 and FP2 arenât about the quickest laps. Theyâre about what we did today which was work through the program, start to understand how to manage the tyres and generate as much data as we can for the guys to work on at the track and back at the factory. Iâm sure Saturday weâll show what we can do around here and I think the tyre strategies are going to make it very interesting!â
So which is it for you?
