Sergey Sirotkin believes Williams Martini Racing are looking “reasonably good” after Friday practice at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace.

It’s the Russians first Brazilian Grand Prix and he looked to have decent pace in Free Practice 1 and 2, finishing seventeenth quickest in the first session before moving up to sixteenth and ahead of team-mate Lance Stroll in the second session.

It’s been a tough season for Williams as they currently sit bottom of the constructor’s standings and used Friday in Brazil as a chance to test components out for next year’s car.

“It was a busy day today, we had some interesting bits on the car for next year’s development. We managed to collect a lot of data and went right back to the baseline.”

Sirotkin was pleased with how the car feels and believes they are in good shape for the weekend.

“We then had to switch back to race weekend preparations and car set-up which went fine.

“In these conditions I think we are reasonably good.”

Sirotkin has had one points finish this season but feels the pace is looking good.

“There are a few bits I could have done better on my lap but I think pace looks good, particularly long pace, which was surprisingly good. Overall busy, but a good day.”
