Adrian expect for a finish this weekend, with his first two Canadian GP having ended with retirements for Spyker and Force India in 2007 and 2008 season. The German’s best attempt today saw him finish in front of both (also Mercedes-powered) McLarens and six tenths off Sebastian Vettel’s P1 time, with 28 laps to his name.
“It went okay today,” Adrian initiate. “I had a small issue at the end of the morning session so I missed my final run of first practice. The team did a great job to fix it over lunch and we could put in a really good session in the afternoon.
“After the delays we had in Turkey, we could finally do a comparison between the standard rear wing and the switch able rear wing (f-duct) and I could see the difference it made.
“In addition to the setup and baseline work, we also completed our normal tyre programme. The times look pretty good and I felt comfortable, so I’m really hopeful of a good result in qualifying.”
“Today was very positive and definitely a good place to start from,” added a much more positive Liuzzi. “We went in a good direction and got a lot of information to look at for the qualifying.
“Everything felt a bit better and I was more comfortable, which shows in the times, but it’s difficult to compare here with other races as the track doesn’t have any grip at all right now.”
