“Overall the feeling is good, more or less like the test,” Binder said. 

“We started off strong in FP1 with the hot conditions and I finished as high up as I could. 

“Obviously everyone improved a lot in the cooler conditions of FP2, as we expected. I struggled a little bit at the end; I had good rhythm and could put a couple of good laps together at the time, we just missed a bit of speed. 

“I think I’m going to have to try and find something in FP3 to try and get into Q2 directly. I feel like my pace is quite good, it’s just that my one lap speed could improve a bit. I’m aiming to get a good lap in tomorrow and I really want to qualify on the front three rows.”

Despite his concerns about his one-lap pace, Binder threw down the fastest time in Quali 1 clocking 2’04.834 to finish ahead of Izan Guevara, Romano Fenati and Riccardo Rossi who will join him in Quali 2.
