The McLaren driver summed up the difficult Friday in Mugello …

Question: Carlos, how do you assess the behavior of the car on Friday?
Carlos Science: We tried all day to balance it, find suitable settings, but we failed to get the Soft tires to work. In the evening we’ll think about how to achieve more tomorrow. If we can find the balance and settings, we will seriously add. There is always an opportunity to add. Let’s see what happens.

Question: The reason is that you arrived on an unfamiliar track?
Carlos Science: Yes. Traction is very weak, the balance is strange. But we cannot bring Monza here. It is necessary to achieve efficient operation of the machine here and now, to cope with the peculiarities of this route.

We need to make the machine work. If we get into the settings, everything immediately becomes much better.

Question: What needs to be done to achieve a good result in qualifying?
Carlos Science: Bring the machine to optimal working conditions. This was not achieved on Friday, so we were left behind. I didn’t feel comfortable driving all day. But if the settings can be found tomorrow, the day will go much better.

Question: Today you tested the new nose cone – are these tests already for 2021?
Carlos Science: Not earlier. It was supposed to appear on the car this year, but other elements from this body kit are not yet ready. Therefore, we test them one at a time.

Q: It will be hot on Sunday, and the Soft tires already on Friday kept a very short distance …
Carlos Science: Our problem with Soft has nothing to do with the tires. Hard tires don’t work here at all, the best compound is Medium.
