Red flags main characters in qualifying

Macau Grand Prix day two. All the attentions were to the afternoon session, the one that determined the starting grid for tomorrow qualification race.

Bad news for Matsushita that have been penalized for not stopping at the red light at pit enter for technical controls during the first qualifying session. The Japanese will start at the end of the grid, whatever result he may get.

Free practices with focus on tires and cars saving for the qualify. Ombra drivers too followed the trend: Winslow closed with the 23rd place and Matsushita 29th.

The main session has been characterized by two red flag stops for car accidents and several exposure of yellow flags that forced drivers to slow down during their potential fast laps. These situations involved Ombra team too; Winslow, that improved by one second his best, got the 22nd place in qualification race, while Matsushita, due the penalty, will start from the last row.

Massimo Pollini, Manager: "Today we saw the good and bad of this track. Our potential is higher than the one we showed, but when you have a qualifying session with so many flags, the border between a good performance and worst one is very thin. But for we know how the things go here, we know that nothing is lost, tomorrow we hope to recover some position for Sunday race."
