GP Russia: a Placid and brilliant Friday for Mercedes in Sochi


on Friday in Sochi has been developed in key Mercedes and
not only for the best time, marked by Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton in
the first two free Grand Prize. The arrows of silver
have managed to accumulate 130 turns
the layout of the city, Russian during the day and
despite a small hydraulic problem in the car of Hamilton, the two
riders have shown to be very fast both to a return as in the mock
career. In addition, the two F1 W07 Hybrid have released changes to their power units for the value of two tokens.

Nico Rosberg has set the standard in the first training
after stopping the clock in a time of 1:38.127, registry
served to overcome in seven tenths of his companion on the box, despite committing
some errors typical of a track with a lack of grip. Your FP2 was marked
by a mock race, although before that point the German was placed in
third position with a time of 1:38.235. A chrono that denotes a certain margin
for since has been one of the few riders who has not improved their time from the
tomorrow during the second free

At the end of the day, Nico Rosberg wrote:
“it Has been a good start to the weekend. It is difficult to do well
here, because there is only a small window in which the tyres work
, while there are a lot of places to make mistakes”
So much so that Rosberg acknowledged: “I have never been able to connect a lap
quick with the superblando in FP2. The car felt good on a quick lap and
on long runs in the afternoon
. It is very encouraging, I am happy to be back
here to Russia and I have a lot of interest to live the rest of the order semana”.


For his part, Lewis Hamilton left a good notice of your
speed in the second free
, marking a 1:37.583 that has remained as the
best record Friday in Sochi: “It’s good to be back in the car
after what has felt like a very long wait from China. Has been
a day constructive to start the weekend
. We have managed to complete
the greater part of our program today, although some of our tires
ended up with flat spots
, although there is no drama great in it”.

by way of balance, Lewis Hamilton believes:I Think that
we are in a strong position here
, but we have to keep working hard
to be able to stay ahead of the Ferrari. It seems that could give a
more step this weekend, be a little more competitive.”
In this line,
Hamilton prefers to focus on his work to be able to correct the small
outputs or the spin that has suffered during the first free:We have
some things to look for to make sure that we perfect the set up for the
, then we’ll see how everything goes”.
