Carlos Sainz to start seventh in the Singapore GP

  • Carlos ratified himself as the fastest driver behind the three leading teams during Qualifying at the Marina Bay Street Circuit.
  • The McLaren driver set a 1:37.818 in Q3 to beat by two tenths his nearest competitor.
  • He felt a power issue in Q1, but he managed to make the cut without any major concerns. Later, in Q3, he had a misfire that cost him time, although he still managed to set the seventh fastest lap.

QUOTES:

"I am very happy. We achieved the best position we could get for tomorrow. We were very fast at a track with many slow corners, which in the past where tougher for our car. We were seventh in all Free Practices and I wanted to repeat in Qualifying. We did it!".

"The car has behaved well all the weekend. I have felt confidence from the very first lap I did on Friday, but it was important to not take unnecessary risks in Q1 and Q2. I gave my best in Q3, but I could have been a couple of tenths faster because I had a small misfire, although my position would have been the same anyways. Thanks to the team. Now we have to get the job done tomorrow".
