Alvaro 3rd On Grid After “non” Qualifying Session
The wisdom of planning GPs into countries’ crap weather seasons has once again come into focus with the piss-poor joke of qualifying being null and void in Japan due to torrential downpours, after rain in the desert at Losail.
As such, Alvaro starts from 3rd spot on the grid; “qualifying” being based on the timings from yesterday’s Free Practice sessions.
Here’s what he had to say…
“Whenever this happens you always regret not pushing harder in the first session but we’re on the front row and that will be important for us to make up positions in the first part of the race. I think we have a good setting for any condition so we just have to wait now and see what state the track is in tomorrow.
I felt good in the wet practice this morning – I just had a visibility problem towards the end and couldn’t continue to improve my lap time, but the feeling with the bike was good. The objective will be to go out and give 100%, run at the front and take care to judge the track conditions correctly.”
Good luck for the race, Bati 🙂
