James Allison: Quite good day, but could be better


On Friday in Spa in Mercedes tested the new engine, worked with rubber and looked for settings...

Lewis Hamilton (2nd): "It is exciting to return to work! The summer break never happens too long, but at some point begin to miss races so I am glad to take the wheel again! Modern cars - the fastest of what we ever had and in Spa it is felt. Pouhon can be passed, almost without removing a leg from the accelerator pedal - it is improbable.

Today we used the new engine, and everything has passed quietly. We conduct dense fight with Ferrari, and, it seems, we have approximately identical rates of completion of the car. On the average sector there is a wish to have rather high level of clamping force, but on other part of the route - small that there was a good speed on a straight line. The problem is in reaching compromise, and fortunately at us the excellent team is engaged in it.

before a week-end I heard that the whole three days will be rainy. In the first training on some sections of the route there were drops, but all second session has taken place in dry conditions. I hope, everything will remain still, it is exciting to act on the dry route here".

Valtteri Bottas (3rd): "The car behaved not bad. At the beginning of day there were small problems with balance, but all of us have corrected. On slow pieces there are problems at the exit from turns. Sometimes to Ferrari quicker, for example, on a piece between 5 and 7 turns, we concede noma not so much. However, on Friday it is always difficult to draw conclusions, and results of qualification for certain will turn out dense.

Usually should look for a compromise in settings between qualification and a race, but as I will receive a penalty, we have focused on preparation for a race. Fortunately, at the car quite good speed on a long series of circles, and in Spa it is possible to overtake. Today the new engine worked well so I look forward a race - it has to turn out interesting! "

James Allison, technical director: "Today there were pluses and minuses. It is good that we without problems have executed the planned program and have collected necessary information on rubber. Besides, both racers at different stages of day were fast, and new engines are very effective.

We should work with a speed on a long series of circles, today because of traffic and a puncture we couldn't find a suitable rhythm. So, day has passed not bad, but it could be better. Now all of us will analyse to achieve from cars of bigger speed and on one circle, and on a long series".
