- The Spaniard of McLaren was the driver that completed the most laps in the second session of the day, 45 in total on the soft and hard tyres.
- In this session, Carlos ran for the very first time with the latest aerodynamic upgrades of the MCL34.
- He will turn his attention now to analysing the latest package and optimize the set-up ahead of Saturday’s Qualifying and Sunday’s race.
"We are more or less where we expected. We managed to analyse the new aerodynamic package, which I was able to test during Free Practice 2. I felt some differences and got a feeling of it. Now we have to see how we manage to optimize it and understand it better for tomorrow. I think my race pace was good, although the track was not in optimal conditions".
"We have had a good start to the weekend so far. My feeling is quite good at the moment, but it is still too early to say. We have to analyse a lot of things together with the team this afternoon".
