"A normal Friday's programme which unfortunately ended with a small electrical problem on my very last lap. This didn't hamper our progress today where we focused on Michelin tyre evaluation and set-up work."


"It was great to be out there for my first race weekend since the Bahrain Grand Prix last year. Running through our Friday programme we are not quite yet where we want to be, however in tomorrow's practice we can continue to improve."


"With the exception of a small electrical fault on Kimi's car in the closing seconds of practice the day was uneventful with us focusing on tyre durability with Michelin."


"We worked through our scheduled programme of setting up both cars for the race. Kimi experienced an electronic problem on his last scheduled lap, the cause of which we are currently investigating."
