Lotus Renault GP had a dissappointing qualifying session today with neither car cracking into the top ten, despite showing promising pace in Q1.

Vitaly set the fastest time in Q1, with a 1min 26.189secs. Had that time been set in Q2 would have taken him through to Q3. Unfortunately, he was unable to replicate the time in the second session and set the 11th fastest time, to which a five place grid penalty will be added for tomorrow’s race.

Bruno set the tenth fastest time in Q1, but could only manage P15 in Q2, meaning both drivers have tough tasks ahead of them for Sunday’s inaugural Indian Grand Prix.

Sebastian Vettel was fastest today with a lap of 1min 24.178secs whilst Lewis Hamilton was second quickest.
