The Racing Point team is upset that on Friday there was no opportunity to work on the track, although it is possible that the cancellation of the first two trainings will only make the German racing weekend more interesting.
Lance Stroll: “It’s great to see the spectators in the stands again, but I was upset because they didn’t see any events on the track.
The teams have not played at the Nurburgring for a long time, so they have no data to rely on, and everyone is under additional pressure due to the fact that there is only one training session left before qualifying.
In addition, we still have to see what the weather is waiting for us tomorrow. The third training session may start on wet asphalt, and by the time qualifying the track will have time to dry up, so tomorrow we will have a day when we will have to react quickly and try to figure everything out in order to better prepare for Sunday. “
Sergio Perez: “I am worried about the fans – both those who came to the circuit and those who stayed at home, because today they did not see anything. If the race at the Nurburgring is held at such a time of year, there is always a similar risk, but I hope that at least the rest of the weekend goes smoothly, and we can arrange for the fans some kind of entertainment.
Friday was unsuccessful, but it can make the weekend more interesting, because the teams will not have the usual information collected on Friday training. We must be ready to learn quickly, and in the future we may expect new surprises. “
Otmar Safnauer, team leader: “It’s a pity that there were no events today, and we are upset that the fans did not see cars on the track. But due to the fact that no one was able to leave the boxes, we will hold a rehearsal of how the weekend goes in a two-day format, because this is waiting for us in Imola!
Today’s loss of time will increase the pressure that all teams are experiencing, because tomorrow it will be necessary to get as much information as possible on each lap. There will be a minimum of time to search for settings before qualifying, but everything is in equal position. ”
