Later on we moved to some performance work and tyre testing, and feeling all the different Pirelli compounds was something quite new for me. It’s been almost a year and a half since I last drove, but I found that I was able to get back up to speed quickly and set some good times before lunch. In the afternoon we did some long runs and also introduced the hard compound tyre, which feels quite different to the soft and mediums.”
