QUESTIONS FROM THE FLOOR
Q: (Christian Nimmervoll – Motorsport.com) Lando, are you aware or own been you aware that after 18 of the 20 mini-sectors you own been nonetheless going for pole with pink times and while you happen to own been, where attain you suspect there became once any likelihood in those closing two corners you own gotten managed to head for pole, the relaxation you own gotten improved?

We are where we are, I dispute throughout this year we don’t own a factual satisfactory automobile comparing to Crimson Bull or Mercedes in favorite, even though perhaps on the present time we attain but brooding about how valuable sooner they own been closing weekend I dispute it’s obviously we fight in heaps of areas, the automobile’s not as rapid as them and heaps of things have to not that it is seemingly you’ll perhaps well perhaps also imagine comparing to them. I dispute I maximised our result and that’s all I’m able to also attain.

I don’t know. Nothing glaring. I dispute we maximised the automobile closing weekend. We horny made some very little tweaks for this weekend so it’s not worship we became a automobile upside and came across the relaxation fresh or something that every particular person genuine now worked that didn’t. It’s horny looking out into more data, ironing out the exiguous bits of inconsistencies and exiguous things you fight with. And then more horny the final contrivance down to me delivering the lap when I in actuality own to so yeah, nothing that’s gorgeous or nothing glaring but additionally feeling worship I did a factual lap myself and heaps of it came from that.
