Sauber duo Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi says that Q2 yellow flags back off their qualifying pace for Korean Grand Prix.

Several drivers break up their flying lap in Q2 sector three yellow flag due to Toro Rosso speedy Daniel Ricciardo’s gearbox problem and he parked right side of the track his failed machine.

Last grand prix final podium holder Kamui Kobayashi displeased with the Q2 incident and he says that he had back off, emerging yellow flags in Q2.

Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi will start 12th and 13th on the Korean Grand Prix grid.

“I would have been easily five tenths faster but I had to back off when the yellow flags came out,” said Kobayashi.

“I am quite disappointed, especially as we had improved the car for Q2.”

Sergio Perez also says back off following sector three yellow flag, but he optimistic that Sauber was saved a set of fresh tyres for the race.

“It is a shame, as we were so close to getting into Q3 but, of course, I had to back off because of the yellow flags in the last sector.” Perez said.

“Well, the positive side is that we have saved a set of fresh tyres for the race. In any case it will be an interesting one because I could not do long runs in free practice to the extent I wanted to.”

Sauber’s track engineer Giampaolo Dall’Ara also added that yellow flag cost their pace, but he insist that Sauber can make positive for the race.

“There’s no doubt we were unfortunate today with the yellow flags, but we have to take the positive from the day,” he

“After having some troubles yesterday, we managed to improve the set-up significantly overnight and both our drivers were very strong.

“I believe the performance of the car is stronger than the results suggest, so we have every reason to be positive for the race.”
