„I can ride 1:58 low regularly, this is good news for the race. But I would need to make one really fast lap that would move us forward on the grid. So far we are not able to achieve it. We are still struggling with some problems, but tomorrow we will try to work on it and be prepared in best way for qualifying practice .“

„It isn't happiest day, but we still have lot of reasons to be optimistic. We are losing just 1,2 second to pole position, it is really close. Unfortunately we are still losing something to the best pre-season lap time, which hadn´t been perfect. So we know that there is potential to speed up and we can do it. Our aim is to be on fifteenth place on the grid and i believe that it isn't unreal.“
