The Spaniard continues his streak: fourth Q3 in a row this season
- The driver of Renault Sport will start the Azerbaijan GP from the ninth place of the grid, on the clean side of the track.
- He made it to the last phase of Qualifying, where he had a single set of ultrasoft tyres.
- Tyre-management will be key in a hard race.
"Qualifying went pretty well. I am positive. We missed that little step you have to take between Q2 and Q3, but getting to Q3 already proves our consistency. It’s an effort from the whole team. The first sector wasn’t perfect, but the last two were pretty good. Starting from the Top 10 is always good news".
"The start will be key. Our goal is to maintain ourselves in the points and try to make it as far as we can. We have to be ready for everything, because it can be a chaotic race. We will try and seize every opportunity we have".
