“I’m happy with the result and, as is this weekend – quoted Alonso press-service of the McLaren. But we understand that the race pace of our car is not as competitive as on one fast lap. So if the race will be held on a dry track, to keep the tenth position will be hard. Rain could to help us.

The struggle in the middle of the peloton is very tight, but we, as always, will do our best.”

Partner the Spaniard in the team Stoffel Vandorn qualified seventh, achieving his best result in Formula 1.

“We were hoping to get into the third segment, but did not expect it to be classified as high – shared his impressions of the Belgian. – I didn’t make any mistakes and attacked every lap, in every sector. Seventh place on this highway is a good result for us. I am very pleased with today’s performance.

In the race we are likely to have more difficult than in qualifying, but at least we participate in the struggle. The Friday training no one has managed fine to work on a long series of laps due to red flags in the second session]. I hope that we will be more prepared opponents and thus get the advantage.”
