“To be honest, I expected a little bit of a better result, but third row (P9) is not too bad for tomorrow’s race. In FP4 we were fastest and that’s good for the race pace. In qualifying it was a little bit strange as I struggled with the performance of the speed, but I’m really looking forward to the race. Hopefully we can make a good start and follow the top guys and I’ll fight until the chequered flag.”
