“The conditions today were tricky. The track was slippery the more it drizzled and Suzuka is a narrow circuit and there are a few corners where the car had a tendency to aquaplane. We have work to do for tomorrow but I think we are ready. The chassis is handling well, cornering in the wet has always been strong for us but we don’t know what the weather will be like tomorrow. For us it would be good if the rain continued, but we will see what happens.”

“It was a little difficult to get temperature in the brakes, with the weather and the short runs, but not much else happened today. In the few laps we did, I think we got an understanding of the track conditions and if they remain the same for tomorrow, we know which direction we should take with the set-up. But it doesn’t look like the weather will remain the same! In that case, we will have to work efficiently tomorrow to get the car set up and we won’t have much time to change the balance once we get going but we will see how we go.”
