“I am pleased with the results of qualifying,’ said Esteban. – The car was fantastic from the start of the weekend, as in Malaysia. Our result is a demonstration of the progress we have achieved by updating the car.
And on dry land, and on a wet track our car is fast, and in order to achieve the maximum effect, we have made minor adjustments to the settings.
Due fines other pilots, I will start the race from fifth place. This means that in the race we will have the opportunity to set good points.”
His teammate Sergio Perez showed the eighth time in qualifying, but the race will start from sixth position on the grid.
“A very successful qualifying session for us, – said the Mexican. Despite the lack of time spent on the track, the team did a great job and found both machines the best settings.
I believe that we are most revealed the potential of the car and achieved the best result, so I’m happy.
My final quick lap in the third segment was OK, although I lost a little time in the last Chicane that cost me a position in the battle with Esteban.
He also did a great job during the weekend, and together we brought a very important qualifying result for the team.
Frankly, we expected more of a bitter struggle in the middle of the peloton. On the other hand, I’m glad we were so close to Red Bull. Waiting for us long race in which we can score a lot of points because our car showed good pace for long stretches”.
