“Qualifying worked out well for us today” said Nico after the session. “P8 was our target and we were able to achieve that position. I’m ahead of a Ferrari and a Lotus so that’s a good step, and we have made some improvements with our set-up work this weekend.
Thanks to my mechanics today who did a great job to fix an issue with the brakes just before qualifying and make sure that the car was ready in time. It won’t be an easy task for us to move up the field tomorrow but I’m looking forward to the race and to seeing what we can achieve.”
