Lance Stroll: I haven’t qualified for the finals for a long timeSeptember 8, 2019
On qualification in Monza on the car of Sergio Perez there were problems with the power plant, and he dropped out of the fight. Lance Stroll showed the ninth time and hopes to earn points for the team tomorrow.
Lance Stroll (9th): “I am glad to compete again for the top ten positions – I have not passed the qualification final for a long time. Still, it is a pity that we could not show the time at the end of the session. In my opinion, everyone underestimated how much time it would take to drive a circle – everyone slowed down, trying to use the slipstream for one of the rivals, but in the end no one succeeded! I take off my hat to Sainz – he did everything right.
I have many good memories of Monza. It’s great to drive along such a fast track driving a Formula 1 car and feel its speed. I hope tomorrow changeable weather will add intrigue and we will earn a lot of points for the team. “
Sergio Perez (17th): “I am very sorry. Today I missed a chance and could not get into the next session. Something happened to the engine, but I don’t know exactly what. Power fell, I had to stop the car. Let’s see what we can do tomorrow. I hope we minimize losses, perform well in the race and earn points. “
Otmar Safnauer, Team Leader: “Lance did a great job and made it to the finals. He did not like the behavior of the machine in the final training session, but we corrected something before qualifying, and Lance drove circles without problems and mistakes when it was important.
It is a pity that Sergio could not join him in the final session. We need to analyze and deal with problems with the power plant. This means that Sergio will have to start from the last rows, and this is a little disappointing. Together with Mercedes, we decide which powerplant is better to use in the race. ”
