Magny-Cours Qualifying - Perera and Monfardini will aim for points tomorrow despite missed opportunities in qualifying

The DAMS drivers were a bit disappointed by their qualifying today at Magny-Cours as both of them missed opportunities to set better times. Finally Perera will start from 9th place for tomorrow's long race and Monfardini from 14th place.

Franck Perera : "I think the best moment to make a good time today was with the first set of tyres early in the session. In my first quick lap the car was fast, I was on a very good lap. We were together with Caroll, I was catching him, then Piccione went out in front of us, we had yellow flags and the lap was lost. Today there was no chance to make a quick lap on the second lap of the set of tires, so I went in the pits with 11th place. With my second set I improved my time but the first attempt was the best, that's a shame but we have the potential for good points tomorrow."

Ferdinando Monfardini : "I set my lap with my first set of tyres, the track was quickest in the beginning of the session, but I lost a bit due to a slower car in the hairpin of Adelaide. Then we did some changes on my car, which were going in the right direction, and, even with a slower track I was improving my time with my second set. I was pushing hard and I lost the rear in Imola chicane, I managed to recover but the lap time was over. The car is good and I am quite confident for the race"

Race 1 Saturday 15th July 16.00
Race 2 Sunday 16th July 10.00
