REASSURING DIAGNOSIS FOR DANIELSSON AFTER CRASH IN QUALIFYING 1

Alx Danielsson was involved in a major crash in today's 1st qualifying after he hit a car stopped on the track in a place without visibility. The circumstances of the crash have not been determined yet, it seems that Danielsson could not avoid the contact with Colin Fleming's car. However, the biggest shock happened when Proetto arrived soon after at high speed and hit the 2 cars. Danielsson was shocked after the crash but he is now OK and should recover in a few weeks.

He has been examined by the medical staff at the hospital of GENK, and their diagnosis reports a hairline fracture in the ankle bone which does not requires surgery. All the other tests that were carried out did not reveal any other injuries. At the moment, a precise recovery time for the ankle is not certain but it is obviously confirmed that Danielsson will not race tomorrow.

Pastor Maldonado was not successful in qualifying with 25th position obtained in 1st qualifying and 20th in 2nd qualifying. Coming in to the weekend we would have hoped for better results and we are investigating the reasons behind these disappointing positions.

The team remains focused for the race tomorrow and expects to have Alx back in his car as soon as possible.
