But failed in the final training session, the Aussie was having problems with the transmission, and in qualifying he became only the sixth.

A pity, because yesterday I had a good pace, – quotes Riccardo Motorsport-Total. – We had hoped to compete for the first two series. Unfortunately, it did not work, but I am sure that tomorrow we will be able to rise above”.

“On Friday I had serious problems with the car, but for the first time this season we turned the tide. During the night we managed to improve the balance of the car. Not to say that the behavior of the car was perfect, but before qualification, the team adjusted the settings, and I felt comfortable, That allowed me to find those tenths of a second, which is not enough, – said the Dutchman. Now I’m very happy with the machine. Usually, if the car is good in qualifying and no big oversteer, on long distances too, everything should be fine.”
