“It has been a very difficult day. We have not ridden on wet for a very long time and it affects our performance in the morning. We made quite good lap time riding on dry tyres in mixed conditions in the afternoon, but we did not manage to improve after the track got completely dry. It´s quite strange as everybody stays two second under its best from previous years. However we stay in the group of “open” riders and we know the problem. So I believe tomorrow we will be able to be faster and get better position.”
