“I ran our old exhaust system in qualifying today as part of our evaluation programme for next year” said Nico after his difficult qualifying session.
“We had already used it yesterday and made the decision to continue for the rest of the weekend to help with the learning process. The car felt good this morning in the cool temperatures but the difference to Michael’s car surprised me this afternoon.
So I hope that the race pace is better tomorrow and the switch will be worth it. I will definitely push to score points.”
