Nico Hulkenberg - 12th/10th: "Overall it was a challenging day. On the first day there are always a few things you need to work on and improve. I think we still have some homework to do. Free Practice two was quite difficult for me because of traffic. I think we can still improve our time. We collected a lot of data for the tyres and if we do our homework well we should be able to aim at the top ten qualifying tomorrow."
Esteban Gutierrez - 16th/15th: "It was a very productive day. The tyres are getting better, and not as critical as in Barcelona. As a team we need to find more speed, and that means me as a driver as well. I've improved from free practice one to free practice two. Now I will focus on improving for qualifying tomorrow."
Tom McCullough, Head of Track Engineering: "The weather was good to us today, which allowed us to evaluate both tyre specifications as well as some development parts on the car. We had a small problem on Esteban's car in P1 which cost us a few laps, but we got out back on track. Overall, we have some work to do on the car's balance, but we are reasonably happy how it performed. We now need to go and look at our data and make the most of it for qualifying and the race."
