“In fact, our pace is not as bad as the results. The fact that we decided not to use new tyres in the second segment, – said Sainz. We did this because we want to get strategic possibilities in the race, because I will start it with the tail of the peloton.
The second segment was for us strange, because in the course of it, we are not accustomed to do practice starts and testing used rubber. It turns out that we brought this part of the session the sacrifice of the race.”
His teammate Pierre went Out, who took 16th place, added: “the Qualification was formed for me not the best way.
In the first segment I nearly flew off the track due to wheel lock-up in the first sector. Fortunately, I managed to finish the round, although he was far from clean.
I expected to substantially improve in the second attempt, but did not get a second chance because of the appearance on the track the red flags.
I am disappointed with the result because we had the potential to reach the second segment. I hope that we will have a good race and will be able to monitor the tire wear.”
