Massive reliability issues in FP2. This track is a real car breaker! Hopefully we can get these issues resolved before Quali and the race (and it catches up to the other during the race!)

Points are for the race. Get the problems fixed first
We are standing on the shoulders of Giants. So don't kick.

What other problems did not prevent us today? I think today we took everything. #-o

Eyeballing it, SAI's FP2-end stint of about 10 laps went from low 58s to mid 59s, which is not good at all -- about 0.5s off what others were doing at the time, which is an age around this track :(
But teamstream spoke of traffic and who knows how old the tires were or how detuned his engine was
Fingers crossed they have a good night (morning) of data review

Saying that.... are we seeing Mclaren struggle on one of ‘not normal’ race tracks again? Where there’s no historical data to draw from.

From my observations during the last race, we were strong in the middle sector... the sector that has been removed for this weekend #-o
