Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer: "We had a pretty tough day today with both drivers struggling with the balance of the car and the ultimate pace of the car was not there today.

We understand where the car is struggling and aim to address these issues as soon as possible. We believe our long run pace to be better and even from 15th and 18th we will be aiming to get some points."

Pastor Maldonado: "We’ve found it hard to improve from our practice sessions this weekend. I drove a clean lap in Q2 and got everything I could out of the car, but we just didn't have the pace today.

We’ll have to work very hard to be in a position to fight for points in tomorrow’s race from where we are, as it is difficult to overtake at this track."

Bruno Senna: "I’m naturally disappointed with today. We had a few problems during practice with different elements of the car and this meant we couldn’t pull it all together for qualifying. We’ll just have to recover from this moment and try to have a good race tomorrow."
