- Carlos set the thirteenth fastest time in the final Free Practice session, one tenth away from the Top 10.
- Improved feeling since yesterday for the McLaren driver, who hopes to keep the momentum going into a very tight Qualifying session.
- The Spaniard used two sets of soft tyres. On the first one he completed an installation lap and a 9-lap run. On the second one he set his fastest time: 1:34.607.
"We have options to make it to Q3, but we may need more than ever a perfect lap, since all the teams are pretty even. There is risk of rain, but we don’t care about the weather".
