Fernando Alonso: "today was better than last Friday and even though we still have a long way to go, generally it seems we have made quite a good step forward and found the level of competitiveness that we had before Silverstone. one of the positives is the behaviour of the tyres which worked well today and are not problems. Unfortunately, we lost an hour and thirty minutes of testing in the first session due to a programming problem on the electronic box that we then changed. This reduced by half our work programme but we already have an idea of the changes, more Mercedes, Red Bull and Lotus seem ahead of us and we want to do something better than to be the 3rd or 4th weekend force."
Felipe Massa: "it was a very busy day because we had a lot of things to test, and we have done as much as possible in order to complete the program with the evaluation of the Pirelli tyres and long relays.There is a big difference between the two types of tyres with large soft compared to media degradation so it will be interesting to see what will be the influence on the race . As usual, the choice of strategy is important knowing that qualifications remain our weak point, because generally we are not competitive enough, much less than in the race, this is why we do everything we can to try to move as close as possible to the pole position.On the long relay, the car behaved well so I am very confident for Sunday."
