Marussia Friday practice quotes – 2012 European GP

Published

on

Timo Glock, P1 – 1:45.338, 24th; P2 – 1:42.424, 21st
“I have to be quite pleased with the work I have done today, as it has not been an easy day of Free Practice for me. I seem to have picked up a stomach bug over the last couple of days and for a time I have to say I was feeling quite unwell. Back in the car today I have felt a little better and I am hopeful that I am on the mend. With the programme I worked through, the car was performing well for me, so a good start in that respect. My plan now is to work through the data so I have plenty to sleep on while I concentrate on recovering for a new day tomorrow.”

Charles Pic, P1 – 1:44.173, 21st ; P2 – 1:42.958, 22nd
“A very interesting day for me as my programme was slightly different to normal. The engineers changed things around quite a bit to help Timo’s recovery, which meant that I was doing more of the race preparation work. This was good for me and I am happy with what was a slightly more diverse plan. In the end, we seem to have a good set-up direction and with the amount of running we did, we have plenty of data to explore this evening. I think once we have looked at this and we are back in sync tomorrow, we will find that we have recovered some of what we lost in Canada and we can start to work on the gap to the cars in front of us again. For me, a good start, and I am happy that there is more we can achieve this weekend.”
