The pilot of Red Bull Racing Riccardo Daniel was satisfied with the results of qualifying at Sochi Autodrom.
The qualification of Grand Prix of Russia the First shot of Ferrari since 2008!
“We knew that fifth place is our maximum. For this position we’re struggling over the weekend, said the Australian. I’m happy that I won the internal team duel.
I looked at the results and saw a huge gap from the leader. On the other hand, everyone knows that Sochi is not the most favorite route for us.
Last year I got separated from the owner of the pole position by 1.7 seconds, in 2017 by 1.8 seconds. It’s not the best indicators. But I maintain a positive attitude before the race and take fifth place.”
His team mate Max Verstappen, who finished the day seventh, said: “After the end of the second segment went awry. I had two sets of tires on the third segment, but in Q2 I had complained about the loss of grip on braking before the 13th turn. I lost the rear of the car and the tyres overheated.
In Q3, the situation worsened. Usually, if the car more fuel it must go faster. But I was driving, on the contrary, slower. It is no good.”
