“We got a lot of laps in on the new tyres today which was positive”, said Lewis, “and gives us a lot of information to look at and take into our programme for the weekend. We came into the weekend on the back foot a little without experiencing the new tyres.
The balance feels different and we need to work on the right set up but we learned over the course of the day, made some changes and will make more for tomorrow. It's difficult to know how the weekend will go for us.
Others look quick here but we can generally pull a bit more out in qualifying so let's see how tomorrow goes.”
