Kimi Raikkonen: “The first day of this truck was interesting. It’s a very fast circuit and there are a lot of fast corners so it’s not easy to overtake without a big speed difference. There are a lot of fast corners but a lot more. They are cars. It’s on the map more than you feel in. Only about half of them are real corners and most of them can be flat and straight! Indeed, at least this circuit is many other circuits It felt different and was pretty good to drive. Handling traffic in qualifying can be difficult, especially in the fast part, but we manage it. “
Antonio Giovinazzi: “I was really happy to start running on this track and I was very happy that day. I was a little worried that I would have a hard time regaining the feeling with this coming from the Formula E test. The pace is different from the car. But from the start of FP1, the car is great and can be based on this for tomorrow. The qualifying in FP2 feels good and we can take it one step further tonight. The track is really fast and fun and the grip I was surprised at the amount. It’s really fun to have a firm grip on the street track. But small mistakes can cost you a lot so you need to focus. I look forward to tomorrow’s qualifying. I hope it will be a strong day for us. “
