But overall, I’m happy with the progress we’ve been making and we’re heading in the right direction. I think this is a better track for us, especially in the race, and I think we’ll be okay. We’ve got a few things to work on overnight and I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”

Juncos Hollinger Racing Team co-owner Ricardo Juncos commented saying:
“I think we’ve improved the car a lot, bearing in mind we’re using different tires to last year, so we’re catching up a little bit. We were much faster on both cars this morning and I think Agustín was much happier in qualifying and I think Callum is happy also. For sure, we need to improve ahead of the warm-up tomorrow and continue the trend of finding more speed through the weekend. I’m looking forward to a good race tomorrow.”
