For Lewis, “the conditions were very tricky out there today and the team did a great job to get us out at the right times. I haven't had the best of weekends so far so I'm happy to have finally put a good lap together today.
I've done a lap more than Sebastian on my tyres so I might struggle to go as long on the first stint but I'll give it everything I can in the race this afternoon.
The team have worked incredibly hard, both here and at the factories in Brackley and Brixworth, and they deserve a good result. We've got a good baseline to work from with this car but only time will tell where we can go from here.”
