Paddy Lowe, Executive Director (Technical)
A good day to start the weekend, with no major issues on either side of the garage, a full programme completed and our pace looking reasonably good. The main focus has been on understanding the Soft and Supersoft tyres - particularly on long runs, to see which race strategies will make most sense on Sunday. There was a little bit of stress this afternoon with race direction concerning track limits at T1 - particularly concerning Lewis' position with two reprimands already to his name - so we compromised our programme somewhat to ensure that he avoided a third. Overall, though, it's great to be back at the Hockenheimring and we're looking forward to a good battle in qualifying tomorrow.
