The balance was quite variable in the first and last sector on different laps and I’m still not happy in the high-speed corners

It seemed a long time since I was last in the car but straight away I can feel the benefit of the development work which has been carried out in the break, so this is a nice feeling as we know we have to keep pushing hard in the early part of the season in particular. This morning the track was very dirty and it was quite difficult in places, but it wasn’t so long before I was up to speed and by the end of the day the conditions were improving.
