“We are happy to see that we have obviously improved the car over the winter” said Nico after the final qualifying session. “It seems that we can be strong in the race as well from what we learned during practice this weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t get the most out of it today.
I didn’t quite find the right set-up as we have a lot of new things on the car and it will take a few races to get it working perfectly. I also made a small mistake on my last lap which cost me some time.
Seventh place is still a good position though and I will be doing my best to move forward tomorrow.”
