"I had two soft and two hard tyres, split left and right, but I had a problem with the handbrake and locked the wheels a couple of times. I think the guys behind will be quicker."

"Mads was very quick. For me it was okay, but we are too soft at the rear, there is too much movement [he has soft compound tyres at the rear too]. We have to adjust the settings a bit."

"The stage was okay. The car works a bit better in the cleaner conditions, but in one corner we had no [engine] response, I thought the turbo pipe had come off. It only happened once but we have a problem and will investigate."

"It was okay, a bit more confidence. Working in the right way now. Maybe not the best tyre management this afternoon. I have one badly worn on the front. Maybe six tyres would have been a better idea."
