Both Liuzzi and Speed expect a tough time come qualifying tomorrow but the Italian at least was relatively happy with the progress made on day one.
“This morning we did little more than just some installation work, but this afternoon we made some progress. I am pretty happy with the handling and we made some good progress on the setup front. But tomorrow’s qualifying will be difficult for us; Nurburgring is not an easy track, but I’m still positive because overall the car was not too bad and I think we are making a little progress generally."
“On my last lap, my time was up by about four tenths, until I was blocked for a couple of corners by Montagny. So the fact it was looking better means I think the general performance is not too bad. As usual at the ‘Ring we are fighting with lack of grip and too much understeer and although my work is over for the weekend, I think the data we got today means we can move forward tomorrow. Of course, the problem is so will everyone else!"
“It’s difficult to say where we are today. The track is still quite dirty so it is hard to judge where we are in terms of our pace, although you don’t have to look too closely to see it’s not looking too good, although we did get over the worst of the problem early in the afternoon session."
