James Nash #14: “That was better. The car is better than it’s been for the last couple of rounds so I’m much happier here. We found a good set-up with the car and I’m pleased that it seems to work.”

“I’ll be looking to consolidate my grid position in race 1. A podium would be nice and that’ll be the initial aim and then to take it on from there in races 2 and 3.”

Tony Gilham #34: “Its been really exhausting work all day and that was the worst qualifying session of the season so far. The car’s just not working for me at the moment. It might be me but obviously I hope that the problem lies in the car somewhere. We’ve got massive understeer throughout the whole lap. We’ll have a look at the data and make changes to the set-up for tomorrow.”
