Montreal does not seem the best place for that Carlos Sainz get a
great result for the limitations of his car in the paths
fast, but what is certain is that the Spanish managed to complete a
great day of Friday, being eighth and tenth, respectively, in
each of the sessions and disputed.
The team focused on the evaluation of tyre, checking
a better adaptation to the soft compound, but having to improve
even with the two other compounds: the super and ultra-soft.
“What would you describe as a good Friday. Even though our
session free 1 was shortened by a red flag caused by
Massa’s accident), during the second session we were able to complete
the entire program of work. It was a day without any problems or
drawbacks, something that is always welcome. That means
we have a good base with which to start the weekend and now
we just need to continue to do so, so, I’m sure of that
we will bring battle to get into Q3, but we need to
focus on ourselves and extract the maximum amount of our
car: the goal is the top ten!”.
For Daniil Kvyat things were not so good, not being able to pass
of the fifteenth and fourteenth square respectively in the two
sessions of the day. The Russian, in any case, is satisfied
for the work done, although it acknowledged that there was still a lot that
to do with the tuning of the car.
“it Was a good day and very useful. We were able to complete many laps
and that, certainly, will help us to continue with the preparation for
the race on Sunday. we Still need to improve some things in it
regards to the car set-up, but for that are the
Friday afternoons. we Can be happy with our start and
I’m waiting until tomorrow: the differences with our
main competitors are really small, but I have
confidence that we can fight for a good result!”.
The weather, which poses a lot of uncertainty about what
will occur during the day of Saturday and Sunday, will play a role
vital when betting for a tune-up, intermediate or more
aimed at dry conditions.
