In qualifying, McLaren managed to recoup after problems in training, tomorrow the team hopes to compete for points …
Carlos Science (9th): “We have responded well to the difficulties this weekend. In the second part of the qualification, I finally managed to pass all three sectors well and reach the final. It is a pity that because of the yellow flags in the final we did not see what the car is capable of, but I am happy with how we played. We changed a lot during the weekend, but we prepared well for the race and will do everything to earn points. “
Lando Norris (11th): “Difficult qualification, but considering our problems in the third practice, there were some positive moments today. In the morning the car did not have enough speed, I did not feel confident in it, but before qualifying we improved something.
The result could have been much worse, but I’m still upset – a few tenths weren’t enough to get to the final. Tomorrow I will attack in order to win back some positions and earn points. “
Andreas Seidl, team leader: “We had two challenging days in Mugello. We improved the car before qualifying, but we must admit that 9th and 11th places are our maximum for today. We have not lost much to our rivals, and this gives us a chance to compete with them tomorrow. In the evening we will prepare for the race and wait for the start. “
