Toto: "In Formula One, you can't make a car that is the class of the field at every circuit - and we saw that again today.
"We came to Monaco expecting this to be one of our weakest tracks, aiming to limit our losses in terms of points, and this is a decent starting point towards that objective.
"We start P3 and P5, helped a little by circumstances, and also two strong laps from Lewis and Valtteri. So we can't be satisfied, but nonetheless I'm reasonably pleased.
"In Q2, we tried something different with the UltraSoft, but the grip just wasn't there on the harder compound and we were some way off setting a competitive time. It was a bit optimistic in hindsight but we at least tried something different, even if it didn't work out.
"Looking to tomorrow, everybody knows this is a long race and a tough one, with very few opportunities to make up positions.
"They will be managing the pace at the front, so we will try to make good starts and then see what progress can be made. It will be a day for damage limitation - and seizing any opportunity that comes our way."
