John disappointed with Austrian qualifying
Today’s qualifying was a real shame for John after his strong opening day on Friday, and he will start eighteenth, despite having shown great speed in all previous rounds. In fact, in the combined result was seventh, with a time of 1’41.723. Unfortunately, in qualifying he was unable to finalize his time attack, during his second run. For this reason, the only time valid is 1’42.951, with which tomorrow will start from the sixth row.
JOHN MCPHEE :
“I am really disappointed with the qualifying. We were not able to show our true speed. The plan at the beginning was to get a good lap, but I ran straight in turn two. I thought it was better to wait for the new tires at the end of the session and try again with the grip. I am not sure what happened the end, but we missed the lap. This was not my strategy and I am disappointed to end this way. Tomorrow is the race and I will try my best to come forward.”
