Sebastian VettelSebastian Vettel: “In one sense this was a good session as I had a strong pace in Q2. I had a good lap at the end of it. Unfortunately, a technical problem meant I could not take part in Q3, but whatever happens I plan to attack to the maximum in the race.”

Sebastien Bourdais: “The car felt really solid this afternoon compared to the morning when we struggled to put everything together because of the limited running I had yesterday. We made a few changes for the afternoon and I felt we were right on the money. My first run was good on the prime tyre and I was competitive. Then on the first set of option tyres, I had a really good lap until unfortunately I made a mistake at the second to last corner, which ruined it. I had another try towards the end of Q1 but there was a yellow flag which cost me too much time. A shame, as I felt I could have been in Q2.”

Giorgio Ascanelli: “Vettel did a very good job to make it into Q3, but unfortunately he was unable to take any part in the final session because of a technical problem. On his first ever F1 qualifying session, Bourdais could have made it through to Q2, but unfortunately his final attempt was spoilt by yellow flags.”
