Paddy Lowe, Executive Director (Technical)
That was a solid start to the weekend. Both drivers struggled to put good laps together at various points in each session with traffic and the odd mistake. But our pace is looking reasonably good on both the single lap and on long runs. We have more work to do overnight to make sure we have our setup and strategy right for the weekend ahead. Tonight, these W07 cars will be built to race for the last time – cars that the team has labored over for thousands of hours. It’s the first step towards the end of a quite incredible working life for these machines. Hopefully we can give them the send-off they deserve.
