Qualifying Q3: P10, 1:26.339 (last Q3 time attempt was deleted for track limits)
Sebastian Vettel: “Yesterday, we didn’t get much running, not many quality laps, and this morning, we had another small issue. So yeah, not ideal, but equally, I thought the car was okay. I struggled to put it together. So I think it’s probably more me just making sure everything comes together. So not a good good session, but let’s see what we can do tomorrow. Tomorrow we’ll be on the wrong tyres at the end of the queue, at the end of the top 10, so it won’t be a piece of cake.
“It’s not ideal. I mean, not an easy year so far. Obviously now the races come very quick. So that can be a pain but can also be a blessing. Obviously the last two days haven’t been good and therefore we lost a little bit of momentum. The first weekend was trouble, the second weekend didn’t really happen. The third weekend was sort of the first smooth weekend and now we’re in trouble again. So it’s been a bit of a rough start, but you know, there’s not much choice. I’m determined to hang in there. I think the guys are pushing as much as they can. I don’t think there’s any bad intentions by anyone. So we obviously had some issues, but we have to, I guess, at this stage pull through & we’ll come out on the other side.”
