- Carlos focused on preparing himself for the weekend ahead: 39 laps around Silverstone, eighth place with a 1:27.987 as his fastest lap.
- Both McLarens were within the Top 10, even though the aerodynamic set-up of both cars was different in order to try new pieces in his teammate’s car.
- The Spaniard used a set of medium tyres and one of the soft compound, in which he set his fastest lap before moving on to longer runs to prepare for the race.
"It’s been a good Friday for the team. We were in the Top 10 in both sessions, so I am happy with that. The team brought a couple of new bits in Lando’s car which we will now evaluate, but the new barge-boards appear to be working fine. I hope my bits arrive tomorrow so I can use them in Qualifying. We know that it will be very tight, just as it has been in recent weekends".
