Kobayashi says very sorry for the team

Published

on

Sept.24 – The Japanese speedy Kamui Kobayashi apologized; it was his own mistake at turn 10 error. Kobayashi’s car crashed in Q2 at Singapore Qualifying. He was spring up over the Turn 10 kerbs before flying into the exit barrier, with the session quickly being red flagged as a result

“I ended up in the wall in Q2 and the accident was my fault,” Kobayashi explained on Saturday night. “I feel very sorry for the team. I took too much kerb in turn 10, the car jumped too high and this was the outcome.

“I saw a chance to fight for Q3, but it didn’t work out. I was taken to the medical centre and was quite surprised at how carefully they checked me. However, physically I’m absolutely fine. I will do my utmost tomorrow to fight for points and give something back to the team.”

The Mexican rookie Sergio Pérez take pleasure in a much more optimistic qualifying session, only narrowly missing out on a spot in Q3.

“Overall I am pleased with our qualifying performance today, although it is a shame not to have made it into Q3, as it was very close. My lap in Q2 wasn’t really perfect, the one in Q1 was actually better, as I felt more traction then. Nevertheless I’m very confident for tomorrow, as we normally have a strong race pace. The circuit is very technical and a driver can easily make a mistake, or with a good performance make a difference. I strongly believe I will finish in the points tomorrow.”
