While the No 44 has struggled to find an optimum setup balance through the two practice sessions, the No 45 has been very good out of the box. Spencer talked about the car he had today and about the special demands of qualifying on a street circuit, saying "It was a great effort by the team to give me such a fast car for today, both in practice and qualifying.

Setting a fast qualifying lap here is a daunting task – it requires taking a lot of chances, sliding out to the concrete walls, taking as much of the chicane curbing as the car can stand, and being airborne several times per lap. But our second place starting position puts us in good shape for tomorrow's race and our weekend goal of extending our lead in the championship."
