James Calado:It has been fantastic to get an opportunity to drive this week. Its another world compared to what I am used to with so much to learn and so many names to remember! Yesterday was more about getting comfortable with the car and today I was able to do a bigger programme with some aero work. The team also gave me the chance to try some pit stop practice, which was good experience. As a British driver it has been amazing to drive a Formula One car at my home trackits certainly a memory that will stay with me. The car is just phenomenalthe high speed grip, the brakes and the g-forces. Im really happy with how things have gone and I hope the work weve done will help the race drivers in Hungary.
