Of course I'm really disappointed, because what we did on the car from Thursday to today was really good and we had improved it a lot. This morning we had a very good start, I knew that there will be a lot more to come and I wasn't worried at all, but as the qualifying progressed it was just getting more difficult for us to extract the grip. When you don't have the grip here it's more penalizing than on another track, the car was starting to slide a lot and at this stage we don't understand why. While all the grid was going faster and faster, in the end we did the same fast laps we did at the beginning. I did what I could, but I was not as comfortable as I was in the morning. It's disappointing because I missed a good opportunity to start the race potentially from the front tomorrow. I was expecting more because the car gave me all reason to expect more but in a couple of hours we'll start to look forward, the race is tomorrow, we have a great car and a great pace.
