Sebastien Buemi's times:
Practice session / essais libres : 1:49.422 (8th)
Qualifying session / seance qualificative: 1:31.330 (3rd)
Sebastien third on the Monza grid
Sebastien Buemi has managed to achieve his GP2 season's best qualifying position, as he will start tomorrow's feature race from the third spot of the grid. Last week, coming back from Spa, his team found out that a reinforcing structure in his chassis was broken, which could explain why Sebastien's Belgian week-end was so difficult. The chassis now being repaired, his times immediately improved.
Sebastien Buemi: "I am quite happy, because today's session proved that I can qualify well in front when the car works properly. On top of that, I made a slight mistake in Lesmo's second corner during my fastest lap, otherwise I would sit on pole. On this track, we run with minimal downforce, and that seems to suit our car better. As I have nothing to lose in the championship, I will fight for the best possible position tomorrow... "
