In an interview with the media shortly after qualifying for the Singapore GP today, Sauber driver Felipe Nasr was not very happy with ending the session in eighteenth place.
With Nasr struggling to extract pace and performance from the Sauber, his team mate Marcus Ericsson put in a credible performance to qualify sixteenth ahead of his 50th GP start in Formula One.
In his interview with the media this afternoon, Nasr was understandably disappointed with his performance today, even though he was comfortable with the car’s balance beforehand but will not give up in the race tomorrow. Nasr said the following:-
‘It was a disappointing qualifying for me. I was surprised by the drop of performance in qualifying, as I felt comfortable in the car during the free practice sessions. We went in the right direction in regards to the car’s balance. Then in qualifying I struggled with the rear grip on my first try; on the second set of tyres I felt that my tyre temperatures were not in the right working window. Anything can happen here in Singapore, so we keep fighting.’
