Jos Verstappen produced the best qualifying result of the year for the OrangeArrows team in Montreal this afternoon. Steadily improving throughout the session, Verstappen took 13th position on the grid at a circuit he really enjoys.

Team-mate, Enrique Bernoldi, had a tougher time. Still learning the track, the young Brazilian worked hard but could only manage to secure 17th position.

Jos Verstappen
"Well I'm happy with the result. We went quicker than we did in practice and we managed to improve the car throughout the session. Our lap times were consistent and we were able to improve little by little. Everyone did a good job today and we're all really looking forward to a good race. It would be good to get a great start tomorrow!"

Enrique Bernoldi
"I'm disappointed as I just couldn't put it all together to get a good lap today. Yes, I am still learning the track, but I was hoping to do better than that. We didn't make any changes to the car during the session as it felt good but it just didn't go my way today."

Mike Coughlan
"That was the best we could expect today as the next position up the grid is sixth tenths of a second away from us. Jos did a very good job, steadily improving. He lost his last run due to the red flag but I don't think we would have found enough time to improve our position. We decided to put him in the T-car for a couple of installation laps during the last minutes of the session but time got the better of us. Enrique is still learning the circuit. It's his first time here and he's naturally disappointed not to be closer to his team-mate. We could be in for a good race tomorrow so we are all looking forward to it."
