FROM P21 IN FP2 TO POLE IN QUALIFYING
“It was a big step into the unknown for me in qualifying this afternoon as we’d been all at sea with the car throughout morning practice. But what a fantastic job in the end! We had a lot of work to do, so all credit to the team for turning the car around and giving me pace.
I knew straight away the car was transformed in that session and we’d made the right calls.
I think 1m55:371s was the ultimate limit for us, it was a special lap. I really do enjoy this top 10 shootout format and it adds another layer of strategy and excitement.
A front row start is magic and I’m confident we’ll have a really strong car tomorrow. It’s set to be even hotter though which suits me and the car well. Music to my ears!”
