Paul Hembery: “Conditions were hotter than ever today, which obviously makes life tougher for the tyres. However, we’re seeing a very solid and even wear rate, with the soft tyres and medium tyres about eight-tenths of a second apart in terms of performance.
“This opens up a wide range of possibilities when it comes to strategy, and we’ve already seen Mercedes and Lotus Renault taking quite a different direction with Rosberg and Senna during qualifying. It’s going to be fascinating to see what effect these approaches have on the race tomorrow, which is set to be a very proud moment in our history.
