“Today was a difficult session as the car was very fast but I just couldn’t manage to get any lap in Q2,” Adrian reported. “There was a lot of traffic and then the Renault crash at Turn 1 came just at the wrong time and hit me quite badly. “I’m quite dissatisfied as, when I did get some clear air, my tyres were cold and the lap I did was not enough. We just missed getting to Q3 but it should still be a good race.
“P12 is right in the middle of the field and I like the circuit, the car feels good and I’m going to try my best to get some points tomorrow – you never know what can happen here.”
However, Luizzi is pleased to return to the top ten. “It’s been a good day for us,” the Italian commented. “Q3 was definitely the target and we got it, which is really great after the last two difficult qualifying sessions. I think we could even have got P9, as I was going quicker on the last lap, but just locked up into the chicane and lost a little bit.”
