Michael was obviously very disappointed to have qualified in 18th position on the grid for a race which “looks to be quite competitive for us”. “Unfortunately on my fast lap, which was looking quite good, my DRS broke in the last sector.
We tried to fix it in the garage but were not able to go out again. Trying for a lap without DRS on different tyres would not have made sense. We now have to try to see what we can do from here and push as much as possible.”
