Jules Cluzel : “I’m very happy of the progression we’ve made today, and of the 2019 engine. Despite a crash at the end of the day, I’m able to do interessant lap times. When we will be able to feel more the front, I will be able to push more and be more competitive.”

Corentin Perolari:” During the whole day I increased my rhythm. Today the goal was to be faster on long distances. Wind was very strong and made me lose the front, without any consequences as I have been able to pursue my progression.”
