Sept.23 – Seven times World Champion Michael Schumacher thinks that Mercedes skilled and no big surprises in Friday Free Practice for Singapore GP. The Mercedes duo finished 6th and 15th in second Practice session. Michael Schumacher finished sixth fastest with 1:48:481, and Rosberg finished 15th with 1:50:790.
“The overall picture is probably as expected: no big surprises and maybe the most obvious thing is that the difference between the tyres is quite big,” said Schumacher. “For the rest, it is too early to say as we did not have the time yet to analyse the practice sessions fully.”
“It was difficult to learn a lot in the first practice session this evening due to the interruptions,” added team-mate Nico Rosberg, referring to the issues with loose kerbs around the circuit. However in the second session this evening, we were able to work through a lot of setup changes and learn a lot about the car. I was on higher fuel levels to help our understanding of how to prepare the car for the race. It wasn’t a perfect day but a decent day for me and hopefully we can make further progress tomorrow.”
