For Nico, “we've had a really good weekend so far and have been able to improve the car from session to session with some great work from my engineers and mechanics so my thanks to them. It was so close to beating Sebastian to pole this evening but I'm still really happy to have achieved second place.
It's so important to start from the front here so we are in a very good position for the race. Our race pace was strong on Friday so I'm feeling quite confident for tomorrow evening.
I doubt if we have enough performance to beat Sebastian but I'll do my best to have a good start and then we'll see how it goes from there.”
