Toro Rosso’s Jean-Eric Vergne received three-place grid penalty from Suzuka race stewards following he blocked Williams’s Bruno Senna during the qualifying Q1 at final chicane.
“I was catching Glock on my flying lap and I had to slow because of that, I saw Bruno was coming very quickly and unfortunately he caught me at the chicane, where there is not much room, but I knew I had to let him past and moved as much to the outside as I could – even though I knew I would not be in the best position to come out of the corner.” Vergne said.
“After that, he slowed a lot and I had to pass him again on the straight, otherwise I would not have set a proper time.”
Bruno Senna says that possibly Vergne get a penalty at the same time he added that’s not give any offer for me in Suzuka main race.
“Well, what’s going to happen? He’s going to get a penalty, probably, but that’s not going to change anything for me tomorrow. Few places are harder to overtake at than here but, hey – been there, done that. So we just need to keep things up for tomorrow.”
