Paul di Resta is heading into the second day of the Australian Grand Prix weekend with a range of unknowns hanging over his shoulders, having struggled to gather representative data in damp and drying conditions. The Force India pilot is therefore unable to define where his team is potentially sitting in the pecking order.
"Difficult to say too much about the first or second session because the conditions were so inconsistent with the rain showers," explained the Scotsman. "Even so, we made the best of it and focussed on assessing the aero package we have here and managed to learn a few things.
"We also made some set-up changes between the two sessions and the car felt better in the evening, so that was positive. The difficult thing is that we didn’t really get an impression of where everybody is in terms of performance, so there are still lots of unknowns going into tomorrow."
Nico Hülkenberg backed up his team-mate's thoughts, describing the order as 'difficult to read' ahead of Saturday qualifying.
"Both FP1 and FP2 had mixed conditions, especially FP2 with the heavy rain, which arrived just before the start of the session," he said. "But we made the best of it and I ran on the full wets, the intermediates and the Soft tyres when the track had dried out.
"It’s difficult to read much from the times because not everyone ran the Soft tyres and there were lots of different fuel loads, but the main thing for me is that I have a good feeling with the car."
