Commenting on this lap time, Nazirul said, “In the morning, the weather was not too bad. But in the  noon, it became extremely hot which makes it difficult to find the right setup of the machine. With  Race 1 to be held in the afternoon tomorrow, it worries me as the weather is expected to be similar  to what it was today but I will try to do my best.” 

“I am good with high-speed track and Chang International Circuit has many turns and long straights.  It is also a little technical hence we have to strategize to ensure that we are able to compete  competitively.”
