Will Stevens: “There is certainly more to come”

1 Mins read

Will Stevens began his first British Grand Prix as a Formula 1 driver in a positive manner, setting times with his Manor F1 Team that were more competitive than at any other time so far this season.

For the first time in 2015, Manor introduced an upgrade to its car, and it brought Stevens much closer to the pack, finishing 0.121s behind the McLaren of Jenson Button in first practice, and although he was not as competitive in second practice, he was still within a second of the Sauber of Marcus Ericsson.

Stevens feels there is still more to come from the car, and is hoping for a good qualifying on Saturday.

“A pretty good start to our home Grand Prix weekend, I think,” reflected Stevens. “Our new car developments seem to be working well and there is certainly more to come.

“The balance feels good, so we’re in a good place to start the weekend and I think we’re in interesting company in terms of the cars around us.

“The support we have received so far from the home crowd has been incredible, so hopefully we can have a good qualifying tomorrow.”
