Did you enjoy your time on the track?
aIt was really good as I already knew the track from last year's young drivers test, so I could go get straight into it and feel the car and try to improve the car. … We got some really good data.
Was it a good feeling to show your pace?
If I am going to get the race seat for next year I need to show that I can do this. Hopefully, I showed that I can be on the pace and there is more to come.
As a reserve driver can you gain experience despite the lack of race action?
When I am watching the race in the garage, with the headset on, I can get a picture of the strategy, so I try to learn why they do some things. I try to learn so if I get a race seat some day I know maybe a bit more than other drivers because I have seen everything from the outside first.
How competitive might Williams be at Yas Marina?

What is the latest on your chances of getting a race seat at Williams for 2013?
I am just waiting to hear, really. I think even the team haven't decided when they will decide, so we will have to wait and see.
