Barcelona Qualifying -- Hectic qualifying for DAMS

Kazuki Nakajima took 5th quickest time of today's qualifying session. Kazuki did a good 3rd time in his first run but was stopped in the traffic because of a car which spun during his second run. The engine stalled and he could not restart. Kazuki has done only one qualifying lap.

Nicolas Lapierre finished this session in 6th position. His first run was difficult to manage because of the traffic and an unstable car. Nicolas made a great improvement with his second set of tyres but he crashed before the end of the session.

Kazuki Nakajima: "I had a good lap in my first run and I know that I could have made a better time with my second set of tyres. But I had to stop before the first corner because of the traffic and the engine stalled when I restarted. In the end, I did the 5th time. The penalty dropped me in 15th position but my target for the first race is top 8."

Nicolas Lapierre: "Our qualifying is not so bad. I took the 6th time but I will start in 4th position. We showed in Bahrain that we could maintain a good pace and I will fight during the whole race".
