2018 Formula One Emirates German Grand Prix – Qualifying – Saturday

null
21.07.2018
The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team finishes qualifying with Charles Leclerc in P9 (Q3), and Marcus Ericsson in P13 (Q2)

Weather: FP3: cloudy / heavy rain, 19-20°C air, 23-25°C track; Qualifying: sunny and dry, 22-24°C air, 31-42°C track

It was a very good day for the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team. The heavy rain spoiled FP3 but Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc took the opportunity to test the C37 in wet conditions. The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team drivers tackled the qualifying session on the ultrasoft tyre compound and performed strongly, with one car finishing in Q3 (Charles Leclerc, P9), and the other in Q2 (Marcus Ericsson, P13). Both drivers report having a positive feeling in the car, and are happy with the balance, as well as its performance on this challenging Hockenheim circuit. After three dry sessions and one wet so far this race weekend, the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team looks forward to tomorrow – knowing that the as yet unknown weather conditions could be an extra variable in determining the outcome of tomorrow´s race.

P10 - SERGIO PEREZ - VJM11-02
Q1 1:13.427
Q2 1:13.072
Q3 1:12.774

Sergio: “I am happy with our performance today. I think the team did a strong job especially considering we lost FP3 to the rain. It wasn’t an easy session and I only just made it through to Q2. I had to make every lap count in every session. P10 is a good place to start the race, but I think the conditions will be much hotter tomorrow. So it will be a completely different game and tyre management will be very important. We can certainly aim for points and hopefully beat some of the cars ahead of us.” [Read More!]

21 JULY 2018

MAX VERSTAPPEN Position: 4th 1:11.822 (Practice 3 – no time set)
“Fourth was the maximum we could do. You have to be realistic going into Qualifying and if you don’t have the horsepower you can’t expect to be at the front. I was very happy with my lap, I feel we extracted the most out of the car so a satisfying day from my point of view. The plan was to start on Softs but the red flag in Q2 changed that. Looking back, I think we would have been ok but we wanted to make sure we progressed to Q3, so we will now start the race on Ultrasofts. This compound should be stronger for the start sequence. It’s then unknown how the tyres will degrade due to the track temperature being different from Friday compared to the race. Our pace should be better tomorrow than in Qualifying so with a good start I’ll see how I can progress. I think I’m starting on the inside which isn’t ideal but being on the second row helps. It was good to see all the fans out there, I’m not sure if they were cheering Sebastian as I was following him, or myself, but either way it was nice to see.” [Read More!]

A tough day of qualifying for the German Grand Prix, full driver and team quotes:

Pierre Gasly (STR13-02, Car 10)
Third Practice Session - Best lap: 1:35.659, pos. 5th, 6 laps
Qualifying - Best lap: (Q1) 1:13.749, Pos. 17th
"It's such a shame to go out in qualifying so early. We hoped we would see some rain for the session but it didn't happen unfortunately. It's pretty difficult for us at the moment because the other teams are improving and we haven't made the step forward we would have liked, so we need to work hard to catch the others. I know the team is working flat out, but we are still struggling with pace. I knew it wouldn't have been easy to make it to Q2 today, and in the end we missed it by just four-hundredths of a second. However, considering our times yesterday, our race pace looks competitive, so hopefully tonight we can find a good strategy for tomorrow. Everything's possible - of course we will need some lucky happenings to make our way through the pack, but we will give it our everything to recover as many positions as we can."

"New parts are improving our performance and we are moving in the right direction"

Hockenheimring, Saturday 21 July
Heavy rain throughout the morning meant neither driver posted a time in the final practice session at Hockenheim. Both drivers took to the track to examine the conditions shortly after the start of the session – Stoffel doing two out-laps and Fernando one – but the team deemed it too wet to do any representative running.

Despite threats of further rain and storms, conditions improved in time for qualifying, which remained dry for the full hour.

Stoffel, still battling car issues affecting the balance of his car, struggled to set a solid time on his final quick-lap. He qualified in 20th position, but will start 19th due to penalties for RIC.

Fernando, meanwhile, had a more positive session, finishing 14th in Q1 to progress through into Q2. With a run each on both the Options and the Primes, he ultimately qualified in 11th position, allowing him a free choice of tyre compounds for tomorrow’s race.

SERGIO PEREZ - VJM11-02

FP1 1:15.415 P11 29 laps
FP2 1:14.552 P11 38 laps

Sergio: “It’s been a positive day. We collected a lot of information and I’m happy with how things are going so far. The main conclusion I take from today is that the middle of the grid is very close once again and we will need to optimise everything to make Q3 tomorrow. I feel optimistic we can find some more performance tonight and the conditions could change for the weekend – we think it’s going to be a bit cooler and there is talk of some rain. There is definitely a good opportunity for us to go well this weekend and be competitive.”
