"In the morning things went well. In the afternoon we continued the work, although towards the end of the session was difficult, as there were many pilots looking wheel. We have entered to try to exploit a new tire, but I saw that it was difficult to shoot only on the wind and in the end it was just as I have done my best time. Anyway, I think we have pace to be just ahead. The Silverstone track is very long, so we get a good start and make a first round with the front group. That will be a key factor to consider for tomorrow. We've been working a lot with the setup, because after two dry sessions we have had time to test different configurations. "

"The truth which has not too bad. In the first round we have improved the time to first open the morning and then I set my fastest time on the first outing with soft tires. In the second round were too many people looking wheel. We need a bit of pace to be ahead, but is a circuit in which we have adapted quickly and I think we have a good race. If it rains will be a little tricky because, although the asphalt remains fairly grip, we have improved the pace in the wet. If the race is dry, I think we can be with the second group "
