Matteo Ferrari
"I'm really happy. I wanted to improve what I did yesterday and with a flying lap I wasn't sure I could do it. I improved 8 tenths, certainly there is work to be done because Tuuli did an extraordinary lap, but we are 3-4 tenths behind the best and we can have our say in the race tomorrow. We have a good race pace, and starting from sixth will obviously be an advantage. "

Lorenzo Savadori
“I'm happy, I made a mistake in the third sector that otherwise would have given me a couple of more positions on the grid, but I have to say that overall it went well. Yesterday I practically did not do FP1, I have some knee problems and I have a completely different driving style and I absolutely have to adapt to this smooth and smooth ride. "
