Monaco GP: Qualifying notes - Manor

NEWS STORY
28/05/2016

Rio Haryanto: "I'm pretty happy with my first Monaco Grand Prix qualifying session. I got a good lap, which was pretty on the edge and exciting to be honest. It wasn't easy because the tyre temperatures were dropping all the time. Obviously, every position counts here, so although I'll be starting near the back, it's one place closer when situations arise out on track. And there've been plenty of those, as we saw with two red flags in the Q1 session alone. So into tonight we'll be taking a look at what strategy can help us to take advantage of those opportunities in the race tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to it. As we know, at Monaco anything can happen so I'm approaching the race ready to take advantage of every place that may be up for grabs."

Pascal Wehrlein: "Qualifying was just a mess with all the red flags. Twice I went out on new tyres and each time the session was stopped, so I'm very disappointed. But still I'm excited for the race. It's my first Monaco Grand Prix and I'm enjoying the challenge of getting to grips with this incredible circuit. As we saw, a lot can happen here, so although incidents hampered my progress today, tomorrow they could present us with some opportunities. I'll be giving it my best shot and we'll see what happens."

Dave Ryan, Racing Director: "Q1 was a rather hectic affair, with not just one but two red flags hampering everyone's progress. While Rio had a reasonably good run and was pleased with his efforts, Pascal was less so due to red flag interruptions and usual Monaco traffic issues. Tomorrow's another day and we'll see what happens. We've seen further evidence today of just how tricky this track can be and the possibilities those situations can create will be motivating both our drivers. We'll find the best strategy to help them this evening and we're looking forward to what is always a spectacular event."
