BWT Racing Point Formula One Team’s Lance Stroll believes the Silverstone based outfit have a challenge on their hands this weekend in Monza for the Italian Grand.

The Canadian ended Friday’s practice sessions in 13th and 8th place respectively. Speaking following the action he commented saying:

It’s looking very competitive out there so we could have a challenge on our hands this weekend. There’s some work to do tonight, because we haven’t got the car where we want it just yet. We will study the data tonight and see where we can make some changes for tomorrow. I think qualifying could be quite messy because everybody is looking for a tow. Teams will be playing games so we just need to try and position ourselves as best we can.

Sergio Perez ended the day in seventh and tenth place respectively and speaking following the action he said:

Today was a good start to the weekend and I think we know where we can find some more performance overnight. We now understand where some of our weaknesses were at Spa and we are working to find some solutions for the low downforce set-up. I think qualifying is going to be a challenge tomorrow because everybody wants to get a tow and, like last year, we could see some traffic jams. Every session in qualifying will be a close fight, but we can aim for a start inside the top ten. The margins are close and our rivals are strong too, but we can be confident in our chances.
