iSport team-mates determined to end campaign on a high, despite frustrations

Karun Chandhok and Bruno Senna will start 10th of 12th for the first of the season-closing GP2 Series races at Monza. It has been a difficult day for all the teams, after fierce electric storms delayed this morning's free practice session, but the track eventually dried in time for qualifying and the top 12 cars were covered by less than three quarters o a second.

Karun Chandhok

"I missed the first 15 minutes of qualifying because of a misfire - and that was frustrating because it cost me vital running time in the dry. In the circumstances I don't think 10th was too bad, but with a couple more laps I think I could have gained a significant number of places. The car is definitely quick but the result doesn't reflect as much. I'll just have to prove the point tomorrow, in the race."

Bruno Senna

"The balance of the car wasn't too bad, but we didn't have our gear ratios quite right. The problem here is that cars are very closely matched and a couple of tenths can make a difference of about six places. That hit me quite hard, because I found a little bit of traffic on my final lap, but that's racing.

"I know from testing in low-downforce trim that we should have a quick car in the race, but then again there's a possibility that the weather will be a factor. Either way I think we'll be in good shape."
