What they say

Ocon will start the race on softs but isn’t sure what to expect after he pits:

I think we are jumping a bit in the unknown tomorrow, unfortunately. We did run only the soft tyres actually on my side. So I don’t really know what to expect when we are going to change compound and how the car is going to behave. So fingers crossed is going to be okay.

In cold conditions the graining could be could be a factor like we’ve seen in some cars in practice. But we are usually pretty good in the race. The struggle is going to be for everyone if it is and we are in a good position to start the race, so let’s see.
