"We struggled with the tires."
"Car is feeling good. It's getting better and better. Now it was more slippery. We just keep on trying."
"It's tricky. Some places really wet. Tarmac is changing alot."
"Some parts are slippery, but I expected it more slippery. Maybe we can change something in setup."

"(On slick tires) I think I'm little bit slower, I had not full confidence. But tire choice okay."
Quite okay, calm run. Grip is changing alot.
Short stage. Not perfect, I struggled bit with understeering.
Mechanics did fantastic work. They worked all the night without break. We just will keep pushing.
Not best tire choice. Maybe not best pace, but for beginning okay.
"Nice one. Little bit more wet than I expected. But good start of the day."
