Force India driver Paul di Resta was frustrated after picking up a puncture during second practice.
The result of the puncture left the Brit missing out on gathering valuable data.
“It was not an easy session for me. The balance is still not perfect and we need to work hard tonight to try and improve that before final practice”, he said.
“The main issue of the day was the puncture I picked up half-way through FP2 because I missed out on my high-fuel run on the soft tyres. Also, it was hard to get a clean lap during my low fuel run because the track was so busy. We’ve got data with the other car but it would have been helpful to have run more laps and got a proper feel for the soft”.
Nico Hulkenberg had a more straight forward day, finishing in 8th place.
“The programme for me today was quite straightforward because we managed to do everything we wanted. I completed a decent long run on the soft tyres this afternoon and I think we are quite well prepared going into tomorrow”, he said.
