Productive start in Brazil as Lewis and Nico rack up the laps around Interlagos

  • Lewis topped the morning session with Nico second fastest.
  • Nico came out on top during the afternoon session with Lewis P2.
  • Both drivers used the prime (medium) tyre in P1 followed by the prime and option (soft) in P2.
  • Today saw the first fully dry Friday since the Singapore Grand Prix.

Nico Rosberg P2 ( 1:14.062, 36 Laps)P1 (1:12.385, 42 Laps)
Lewis Hamilton P1 (1:13.543, 28 Laps) P2 (1:12.843, 39 Laps)

Nico Rosberg: It was a good day, as we were able to test a few new things in the first session. Times in the afternoon were not showing the real picture, as Lewis drove in different engine modes to me. He was also very quick today and it looks like we will have a great battle again this weekend. Besides this, we also had to learn the track because there are some quite major changes with the new kerbs. It´s always great to be back on this fantastic circuit. The atmosphere is great, there’s so much history and the fans are very enthusiastic. I have great memories from last year, when I was able to win here for the first time. So I very much look forward to qualifying and the race.

Paddy Lowe, Executive Director (Technical): A good start to the weekend here at Interlagos. It was great to have warm and dry running through both Friday sessions for the first time since Singapore! We ran through a regular Friday programme very smoothly, with a few test items during P1 and a first look at the prime tyre on low fuel. In P2 we ran our regular programme evaluating Prime and Option on low and high fuel. Both drivers are generally happy with the car and appear to be very evenly matched once more in terms of both outright pace and on the long runs. We’ll now prepare for qualifying and hope to carry today’s performance through the rest of the weekend.
