Great qualifying session

Today's qualifying has been exceptional for all the team as Nicolas took the pole position after a perfect session and Kazuki, the 8th place on a circuit he was discovering for the 1st time.

Nicolas was simply unstoppable as he swept aside all challengers to record his first pole position of the season. On the first quarter, Nicolas was classified around the 10th place. Then, he improved constantly and finally romped to pole position in a thrilling qualifying contest.

Discovering the technical track of Spa, Kazuki ended the session with an excellent 8th position.

Nicolas Lapierre: "This qualifying session was great for me. My pole position is such a relief after a difficult season and is the result of an important step ahead. I'm happy for the team and all the work done. I was looking after that pole position and it's a real success. Now, I have to focus on the tomorrow race. Our car is excellent in such conditions and I will push to do the difference as today!"

Kazuki Nakajima: "I'm happy of my result as it's the first time I race here. Due to an accident on the track, the practice tests were stopped before the end so I couldn't take full advantage of the 30 minutes of the session. During the qualifying, my feeling was very good and my progression as well. Now, I will check my data acquisition and compare them with Nicolas, the pole man of the day. I have to learn for tomorrow and I will do my best to win important points for both championships."
