and the aim of the   game. The aim is to try and understand  the car faster than our competitors. Why were we so competitive on Friday  compared to Saturday and Sunday? . Sunday?  That’s a really good question and it’s a question  that we are trying to answer at the moment.   I think If. if You.

you were to look at Friday’s running  it was probably the most competitive we’ve been   at any point through the season so Far.. far. Between  Friday and Saturday we Will.

will have made some changes   and actually those changes were fairly minor,  but there were also changes in conditions   And.

and we Need. need to go Through. through all of that  data, extract as much understanding as   we can from that and use that to move  forward over the next couple of races. Was Lewis’s car damaged in The .

the  first lap contact with Alonso?  The answer to that question is no, we don’t  think so. The contact was wheel to wheel   and as always, we have lots of engineers looking  at the data That.

That way, if You . you  get caught up in a DRS Train,.

train, you always are going   to Get. get To. to a portion of the race where you are  going to get some clean air when the others pit   and you are able to then run long and that’s what  we had in mind with George. Added to that there is   also the potential benefit of safety cars. If the  safety car came out after the others have pitted,   you end up with a clear advantage and that’s how  it obviously played out for George. I have to say,   George drove a fantastic race this weekend.  Starting on the Hard tyre when his competitors   around him where on the Medium. Alright, we lost  a Couple.
