Q1. In the first part of qualifying, Vettel was the only driver to go through to the next part on Medium tyres in a time of 1’22”885.
Q2. Only Softs were used and Sebastian posted a 1’21”912.
Q3. In the final shoot-out, Sebastian soon posted a lap in 1’21”250, good enough for third place. Seb managed to improve on his second run, getting down to 1’21”190.
Sebastian Vettel: “Starting tomorrow’s race from third is not too bad and the car is ok, even if it’s not exactly how we would like it and we are not as fast as we wanted to be. But we’ll start from there and see what we can bring home. This track is unique and conditions are different to what we experienced in testing. We have definitely improved the car overnight, but obviously not enough to be in front of everyone. In tomorrow’s race we’ll have time to understand the car further. We will race as hard as we can and see where that takes us. After all, we are just 16 metres behind pole position”.
