It's always great to be at the top of the time sheets especially at Mercedes' home grand prix, The job now is to translate that into some points. We have definitely made a step with the car. Lewis is very happy with it. The pieces we have brought have worked, so we hope they will make a real difference. Unfortunately, we did not have enough of the new parts to give the same package to Heikki.
