Lotus duo Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean not performed well in Abu Dhabi GP qualifying. Finally the Finn took fifth fastest ahead of Jenson Button. Reasonably its better position for Lotus, and also Kimi believes they will give tomorrow the best performance with latest setup.
Grosjean will start from tenth on the grid alongside with Ferrari’s Felipe Massa. The French man says that it was not best qualifying, but he still believes more work to do in the race.
“Qualifying was good. The car hasn’t felt fantastic all weekend but we decided we weren’t going to change the car’s set-up from where it was for the last race. It was the right choice because in the end the circuit came to us in qualifying where the car was the best it has been so far here.” Kimi said.
“ We’ll give tomorrow our best shot; Let’s see if we can make a good start to get right behind the Red Bulls, and then we’ll see what happens after that.” the Finn added.
Romain Grosjean – 10th: “It wasn’t a great qualifying lap for me today, and P10 is not where we want to be on the grid. In the last run in Q3 I had no grip so wasn’t able to find more pace. The car had felt fine before that and we looked good through the other qualifying sessions. It just means I have some more work to do in the race and I think there’s more to come from me and the car.”
