“Small margins were the story of the day with Sergio and Lance separated by less than a tenth of a second by the end of Q2“Small margins were the story of the day with Sergio and Lance separated by less than a tenth of a second by the end of Q2

OTMAR SZAFNAUER, CEO & TEAM PRINCIPAL of SIlverstone based F1 Racing Point Grand Prix team, “Small margins were the story of the day with Sergio and Lance separated by less than a tenth of a second by the end of Q2. We expect to start from P10 and P12, which gives us every chance to bring home good points tomorrow. I’m optimistic our race pace will allow us to progress from our qualifying positions. The target is to end the year on a positive note.”

P11* - SERGIO PEREZ - CHASSIS 03

Q1    1:36.961         
Q2    1:37.055         
Sergio: “Unfortunately I lost the rear end in Turn 1 on my last run, which meant that I missed my final chance in Q2. I don’t really know what happened. With the penalty for Bottas, we should start from P10 tomorrow, which is not a bad place to be with a free tyre choice. I think we can move forwards from there because our race pace should be stronger. We just want to end the season on a high note.”

P13* - LANCE STROLL - CHASSIS 02

Q1    1:37.528         
Q2    1:37.103         
Lance: “We didn’t quite make it to Q3 tonight, but I think it was still a good effort by the team. I wasn’t happy with my Q1 performance, but I still made it through to Q2. To be starting from P12 gives us a good chance of a solid result tomorrow. We can think hard tonight about the strategy and we’ve got a free choice of tyres for the start tomorrow. There were maybe a few tenths of improvement I could have found in Q2, but I’m quite happy heading into tomorrow knowing that we have a good car in race conditions.”
