And we are out in Q2... Both Sainz and Norris had bad Sector 3’s... Not where I expected them to lose time... 14th and 15th isn’t where the team wanted to start... Hoping that race pace is better than Quali pace tomorrow!

That is worse than expected. However, I'm feeling confident that both drivers can fight for points tomorrow, given the race pace.

Pace is gone all of a sudden! Just hope it's only a one-off

It will be interesting to hear what the drivers have to say... S1 and S2 were green for both of them and suddenly lost it in the last sector... Norris went wide in the last corner, but he was already on an slower time for the whole sector

It's like a rollercoaster in here, after Bahrain we had the 4th fastest car and now we have the 9th after a Qualifying at a track where we knew we were going to struggle.

I think we will see points from both drivers tomorrow

That would be my guess... Sainz was on pace for 11 or 12 before the last sector, commentary just said that he made a couple of mistakes in turns 11 and 12

The only good news is we will start with new medium tyre for the race is much better than the soft like the others
