Haas F1 Russian GP Friday practice report

Romain Grosjean – “It was good to be back in the car. Sochi’s a track I quite like. We didn’t have a very easy day trying to assess how to work our tyres and how to work the car. We can improve and make the car better. Hopefully, we can find those answers for tomorrow, as our performance is not exactly where we want it to be right now. Again, it’s all about working and learning everything. We’re struggling a little bit today, but I’m sure the guys are going to react well.”

Esteban Gutierrez – “I’m pretty happy how the day went overall, as we managed to complete a lot of laps. We’re not as competitive as I would have hoped, but we gathered a lot of data today. We’ll be looking over that to try and optimise our setup as much as we can. In FP1 we had a small interruption this morning, and then this afternoon we looked to be heading in the right direction. We’re still working on our setup with the supersoft tyres, so I think FP3 will be important for us to get a good reference for qualifying.”

Guenther Steiner, Team Principal
“FP1 we had a small issue with Esteban’s car, which took us about 50 minutes to fix. Then we had to recharge his batteries, but it was no big issue. Between the two practice sessions we had good runs. We did quite a lot of laps – more than we’ve done before in two free practice sessions. We are still chasing our setup for here. We need to get the tyres in the window where they work properly. Otherwise, we got a lot of running in and we’ll see what we can come out with for tomorrow morning in FP3.”
