- Positive session for Carlos, improving his car between sessions.
- He set a 1:34.141 on his flying lap simulation, putting himself on the sixth place of a really tight grid.
- The Spaniard of McLaren completed 15 laps on medium tyres across two different runs of seven and eight laps each. He performed a Qualifying run on the soft compound, followed by a 16-lap race stint.
"It was an encouraging Free Practice 2, after some issues in Free Practice 1. It was a good reaction from the team and we created a good baseline for the second session. The grid is as tight as in the previous races, if not more. It would be a mistake to be overconfident, even though it was a decent Friday. I want more from the car and we must keep on working to make sure that it is as good as possible for tomorrow".
