- Renault’s Spaniard sets the tenth fastest time (1.13:200); he could have improved even further if it hadn’t been for the traffic
- As in the morning session, he worked on fine-tuning his set-up and building-up confidence ahead of Saturday’s Qualifying
- He only ran on the hypersoft tyre, the preferred option for the weekend. He still has a set of supersofts and ultrasofts available.
"It was a good day, always in the Top 10. In Free Practice 2 we had a lot of traffic, mainly in the third sector, so I could have improved even further. Still, the car responds well and we are happy".
"Today I didn’t use the small upgrades that Nico has in his car, but I will use them on Saturday if they arrive on time".
"The circuit record has already been broken and we are only on Thursday. We will be very quick on Saturday, as we had already foreseen. The hypersoft tyre responds very well to the characteristics of this circuit, although its degradation is a little bit more severe than what we all expected. Still, it is pretty spectacular in a flying lap".
