"The weather was very nice again today and it was mostly a trouble-free session for us. We continued going through our extensive set-up programme and focused entirely on preparations for the Malaysian race. I am really happy with the work we have achieved in just two days. It will certainly help me to get acquainted even quicker with the particular layout of the Sepang circuit. I will now spend one day at home before I fly this weekend to Malaysia and I am naturally looking forward to it very much."
