Today was very much following our normal Friday programme, Sutil said। I had to be a little bit patient as the track was dusty at the beginning of the morning so it was just driving and learning the circuit again. In the afternoon we then went to do a little set-up work.
It was hard with the scorching track high temperature we knowledge here as the tyres overheated very fast and it was challenging to get it under control। We have a few things to look at set-up wise but we should be fine for tomorrow. We are in the top 10 still, just behind the top four teams. I think it will be an interesting day, probably with some rain thrown in as well!
Liuzzi said, his 90-minute free practice session: Today was a good opening day of practice for the team. I missed the morning session but we did the most important job of understanding the tyres and following our programme targets. We are quite happy, and although the car suffered a little under steer in the high speed corners, it is responding well and we understand the behavior of the tyres over the longer runs. It looks like qualifying here will be interesting as the rain started at 4pm but we can deal with the conditions I am sure.
