“All we can say is that it is surprisingly cool and a lot cooler than we were expecting. I don’t know what is realistic; it could be a couple of laps or a couple of laps more. We have to go with what we have.”

“I had two good runs and got into the groove,” he said. “The car felt similar in balance to Friday, so I was happy and ready to push on the lap. It was tricky to find the limit, especially in the fast bit, Turns 11 and 12. But overall I am pretty happy with the lap and, as soon as I got confirmation it was enough, I pulled in to save the tyres.”
