Driver comments after Thursday free practice

Marc Lieb – Team Porsche #18 : “We have a third car of course here so it is a big effort for Porsche and it obviously takes some extra efforts from the engineers. But I am looking forward to seeing how the #19 car gets on here. It is another competitor but also another way we can share data together and gain a lot of knowledge. Spa should suit us a little bit better than Silverstone and it will be very interesting to see what the others can do here as well. We have to focus on the job we do and look forward to hopefully a great weekend here at Spa.”

Darren Turner – Aston Martin Racing #97 : “When you have weather like we have had today a lot of the plans go out of the window obviously. But we still had some options to try out in the wet conditions and also to give Rob (Bell) time in the cockpit. If we have a dry FP3 tomorrow we will all have to get time in the car which won’t be ideal but overall we  did some good work for wet conditions which could be handy here if the weather remains indifferent.”

Andre Lotterer – Audi Sport Team Joest #7: “We are here to gather as much information for Le Mans of course so we took the decision to come with this version (low drag) of the car.  The conditions were tough and the incident with Oli (Jarvis) could have happened to anyone. Oli is ok, the car less so and we all hope Kazuki is ok.”
