Monfardini takes 20th place after damaging car early in the session

Franck Perera has taken 7th quickest time of today's qualifying session with his 2nd set of tires; after the front row of Nurburgring the young French driver has confirmed his place in the top group. Ferdinando Monfardini lost the rear of his car in the last sector of his first quick lap. He managed to get back in the pits but he lost 1 set of tires and damaged the flat bottom of his car.

Franck Perera : "We have the pace, this is the most important thing. This morning we have made a good work session on the wet. This afternoon, the track was very different from last test here. I was not happy with the beginning of the session but with my 2nd set we have made a great improvement, my first 2 sectors were good but I made a mistake in the last one which cost for sure a few tenths and a much better position on the grid. We are going to prepare this race with one aim, score some points."

Ferdinando Monfardini : "In my first quick lap I was pushing quite hard, the first 2 sectors were quite good actually but in a fast corner I lost the rear and damaged the floor of the car. With my second set the car was really different, especially in the fast corner and I could not do better."
