WEC – What the Drivers Said After Qualifying

After the two twenty minute qualifying sessions ahead of the Total 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, the pole position drivers spoke about their qualifying runs in the briefing room.

“It’s been a tough weekend even though on paper it looks perfect. We’ve been struggling with the balance of the car and we knew we would need a big step. So we made quite a few changes with the car before qualifying and it was like ‘wow’ the car is here.  Because we have the rear wheel drive system, not the all wheel drive, we struggled to get ultimate temperature on the first laps, so I didn’t get to maximise the tyres.  But for the next lap the pace stepped up quite a good amount and I was able to put down a good lap.  
“I have to say that Norman is the one who did an incredible job to continue on tyres and to do what he did.  I am proud to be in the same car as him.”
