Nurburgring Qualifying - Brillant qualifying for Perera on the front row for tomorrow's race, Monfardini disappointed with 19th place

Franck Perera took an impressive 2nd place in today's qualifying session of round 3 of 2006 GP2 series. Franck set the pace with his 1st set of tires early in the session and kept pole position until Piquet improved 5 minutes from the end. Ferdinando Monfardini was very disappointed with 19th position as he could not confirm in qualifying his level of performance in the 2 races in Imola.

Franck Perera : "I am really happy with this result but the weekend is long and we must keep focused in order to confirm in race what we did in qualifying. I think today's pole set by Piquet was really difficult to beat, but we managed to confirm what we did in winter testing. This 2nd place is good for us and for our confidence after the first 2 race weekends; I really want to thank the team for their great job."

Ferdinando Monfardini : "This is really disappointing, we need to analyse precisely my qualifying laps in order to understand this result. My team mate has a good result, it means that we have a good basis but I need now to be competitive in qualifying, not only in the races. In Imola we were close to score some points with a bad position on the grid so I believe in our chances to do well tomorrow with a good strategy."

Race 1 : Saturday 6May May 16.00
