Esteban Gutiérrez:

“It was a great day for me to learn about the different tyres. It is quite challenging to adapt from one to another, and you have to be sensible enough not to push too hard when you have less grip. It was a very good experience for me and I'm looking forward to tomorrow. I'm happy with how the team is welcoming me back in the car. It is good to drive again to continue developing myself to get prepared for the future.”

Giampaolo Dall'Ara (Head of Track Engineering):

“Today the focus was on tyre testing. Esteban compared and evaluated the 2011 version of Pirelli's soft compound tyre with a new soft tyre which has been made for 2012. It is also different in design. We have covered a very good mileage today, despite the fact we had to stop for 20 minutes early in the afternoon due to a loss of hydraulic pressure.

“Although Esteban is very young and drove the C30 for the first time on a proper race track and also had to deal with the DRS and KERS, he gave us very mature and useful feedback. We have done everything that was on today's programme, and are looking forward to another productive day with Esteban tomorrow.”
