pace in long runs very similar to. Despite this, the feeling is that the
team and therefore both pilots are saved that dose of extra performance that
you can make a difference in Austin in relation to Red Bull and Ferrari.
despite finishing with the best time of the day, Rosberg has been very cautious in terms of the performance over a single lap and on long runs. The German rider, who marked with tires superblandos a time of 1:37.358 during FP2, stated at the end of the job on the track: “The performance of the car has been very different between the first and the second due to the track temperature. It was very cold when we took to the asphalt this morning and it altered the behavior that had the car. The time had a clear influence on the balance of the car“.

we will return to the ideal pace”.

these tires and that has caused problems with the tyres front“.
