- Carlos set the seventh fastest time of Qualifying at Silverstone: 1:12.897.
- The Spaniard made the most of his car and achieved a solid starting spot from which he will try to capitalise his race pace tomorrow.
- The cooler temperatures where a challenge for the aerodynamics, but Carlos and his team secured a good result despite the level of their rivals.
"I am very happy after this Qualifying, especially because I think that today our rivals had a bit of an edge over us. We reacted well and we managed to put ourselves in Q3, with some pretty good laps that secured us a good starting position for tomorrow".
"Whether it rains or not tomorrow, we know that we tend to be stronger in the race than in Qualifying. I haven’t driven yet a McLaren in the rain, but we know there are usually some surprises when it’s wet. If it is the case, we will try to seize each and every opportunity".
