Carlos Sainz: It is important to move forward step by stepSeptember 21, 2019
On Friday, both McLaren riders were in the top ten in the second training session.
Carlos Sainz (7th): “A good start to the weekend. In Singapore, it is important to move forward step by step, it is better to feel the car, make the right decisions about the settings and end the day in the top ten. However, do not overestimate the results of Friday – often on Saturday everything changes.
In the evening we will work to achieve more from the car tomorrow and give our best in qualifications. ”
Lando Norris (9th): “Good day. I am performing for the first time on this track, but quickly got used to it. At the beginning of the first training, I mastered the track, found landmarks, outlined the braking points, and then we focused on working with the machine and made progress.
In the second session, we worked with a large amount of fuel over a long distance. Now we need to analyze everything, to understand what is good and what needs to be improved, but on the whole everything went positively. ”
James Key, Technical Director: “Singapore has a difficult track, it is always interesting to come here. This is the complete opposite of Monza – here is a completely different approach to tuning machines.
In the first session, we tested aerodynamic innovations, sometimes the car was in the boxes for a long time, so in the second it was necessary to compensate for the lost time. But in the end, everything worked out.
As always this season, the struggle in the middle group of teams will be tight. We will have to work hard to achieve the maximum result tomorrow.
It is positive that both riders are happy with the car. Lando did a good job, today for the first time he sat behind the wheel on this technical track. ”
