German GP: Practice notes - Manor

NEWS STORY
29/07/2016

How does it feel to get your first practice sessions on home asphalt under your belt?
Pascal Wehrlein: "At the end, I was quite happy; we made some progress today. To begin with, my fastest lap time was on the soft tyres, so the lap time wasn't representative, but in second practice we were on the same strategy as everyone else and we aren't far off the guys around us, so it's a good sign."

And your expectations for the rest of the weekend?
PW: "I hope we can improve for tomorrow. I really want to deliver a good job overall this weekend."

Rio, everything seems to be heading in a good direction on track here?
Rio Haryanto: "Yes coming to the Hockenheimring, we knew it would be challenging, but we are close to the cars around us and everything we have achieved today was pretty much as we expected. We will look at the data tonight and do our best in qualifying tomorrow."

What challenges is the Hockenheimring presenting?
RH: "I think the tyre choice will be a challenge. Looking at the long runs today, it seems that the two tyre compounds are working very differently."

Dave Ryan, Racing Director: "A reasonably positive first day today. We managed to get a good read on the cars and now it's a case of evaluating the data and deciding how best to tackle tomorrow. We appear to be fairly competitive versus the cars around us; it's looking pretty close and another 0.2s would put us up to P16 based on how things stand this afternoon."
