I am pleased that we will start the race from sixth place. But I’ll be even more glad if we fight with RBR in the race. For my part, I will do my best. I’m very motivated. I hope that the race is going to be successful.”
His teammate lance Stroll was not able to get into the final segment of qualifying and was 12th.
“We were a bit unlucky. Think we could squeeze into Q3, – said lance. – Nevertheless, ending my last lap in the second segment turned out blurry: in the last attempt I made a few mistakes, and in the final sector lost control over the rear part of the machine.
I didn’t know how you should warm up the tires, which is a very important factor in Sochi. Nevertheless, we can still have a good race. I hope this time I get lucky”.
