“Today’s Qualifying session was complicated, and we struggled to set a good fast lap and we have not fully exploited the soft tyre. The important thing is that we still have the warm up and with the team we will work hard to find that half a second that we have ahead of us and that we will score tomorrow, and I am confident that we will achieve it”.
