Michael Schumacher disappointed with the ninth place on the grid for Canadian GP. Mercedes early planned single lap in Q3 but didn’t work and they are reverted back to a two-lap run.
Schumacher started second lap, see the green light, and then the Mercedes called him and said ‘no, you’re too late’.
“I don’t think you can talk about satisfaction, rather disappointment, because we’ve been on a good run,” Schumacher told Sky Sports.
“We’ve been [in] Q1, Q2 everything perfect. We tried the first run in Q3 on a single lap, didn’t work and then we reverted back to a two-lap run.
“I started my second lap, see the green light, and then the team called me and said ‘no, you’re too late’. So that’s it and I don’t understand why. I saw the green light, passed it just on time but…”
“We could not have achieved pole today as we could not do the times the guys up front were doing, but I could most likely have been able to do the time I was doing earlier in qualifying and start the race from a bit a better position.
“I now have to take it how it is and make the attack in the race tomorrow that I could not do today.”
