Eric Boullier: "We actually ran it on both cars this morning, but because we have some little issues to fix, we decided to not race it. So it didn’t run it in qualifying. But it is going to be back next week I guess in Bahrain. For all the other upgrades, yes they did work."
"But this morning from the first lap I got in felt pretty comfortable, a good balance, a good harmony in the car, grip was alright, obviously relative to the competition. So I’m quite happy and well surprised today."
"It is the first major development since F1’s parent company Delta Topco was acquired in January by Liberty which is listed on the Nasdaq with the ticker FWONK. Liberty has re-signed the contracts for two races in Russia and Canada but others in Britain and Germany are still under threat and the Malaysian Grand Prix has now bitten the dust."
