6th June, 2014 (F1 Plus / Rosie Baillie) - Lewis Hamilton, who topped the timesheets in FP2, says there is still more to come from the car.

“It felt pretty good out there today but we’ve still got improvements to make and there is more to come from the set-up and balance tomorrow.” The Mercedes driver said.

“You’re always trying to find the limit so we’re not quite where we want to be yet.”

Hamilton observed that Ferrari looked closer to Mercedes on the timesheets and said that pole position was vital for the Canadian Grand Prix.

“The Ferraris looked quite close today and the rest of the field seemed closer in general but hopefully not too close!”

“It’s very hard to overtake here so pole position is important.”

Nico Rosberg said he felt comfortable in the car but will be working hard with his engineers to find the extra pace he needs to match Hamilton’s pace.

“I’m still a tenth off the quickest time so I’ll work hard with our engineers tonight to find that extra pace.” Rosberg said.

“I felt very comfortable in my Silver Arrow. This morning, we worked on some different things with the brakes which didn’t quite work out so we had to change that this afternoon.”

“It was much better for the second session so I’m quite happy now with that.”
