“Our speed was a bit of a surprise today” says Nico “as the car set-up work was focused on good race pace this weekend. But it worked quite well in the hot temperatures.
It's great for the team to be starting from fourth and pole position. I hope we can have a good start even though I'm on the dirtier side of the grid.
Qualifying did not go perfectly for me at the end, it didn't help that my brake balance adjuster got stuck, so I couldn't change it around the lap. That cost me a little, but the pole wasn't possible today.
Now we look forward to tomorrow and I'm confident that we look better in the hot conditions than in the previous race.”
