A1 Team Mexico to start from the front row at Brands Hatch
LONDON The Mexican team keep showing big steps forward after they earned their first A1GP points of the season on the past round, in Portugal.
Salvador Duran, the team's main driver did a great job taking the snake eyed car to its best starting position of the year by setting a qualifying time of 1:11,653 that ended up being the second best time for the Sprint race, only 4 hundredths of a second behind Team Ireland.
"We used the Power Boost on our second run, we had the car to get the pole position but a problem in the rear of the car costed us time and we had to settle for second", said Duran. "We will try to have a good start tomorrow and with a good pit strategy be able to fight for the win".
Having used the Power Boost during qualifying for the Sprint race, and suffering with yellow flags while qualifying for the Feature, the Mexican team still managed to get a good grid position for this race with a lap time of 1:12,740, good to start from row 7.
"First we went out on used tires and the car felt really good. For the second run we were on new tires but a yellow flag ruined the lap and we will have to climb up the field and adjust our strategy during the race".
