Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying notes - Force India

NEWS STORY

Esteban Ocon: "It has been a very strong day for us. The car is working well and it's been very enjoyable to drive. We've made good progress improving the car and we have been quick in every session. Today we were the fourth fastest team and we really deserved this result. Tomorrow is a big opportunity and we need to make the most of it. We saw last year what can happen here with safety cars and incidents so we need to be patient and stay out of trouble."

Sergio Perez: "I am pretty happy with our performance today. It's been a good day for the team even though we probably had the pace to be further up the grid. I don't think we fully maximised our performance and it was a very complicated qualifying session. There were so many yellow flags and the wind made things very complicated, which is why there were so many errors. I couldn't get a proper clean run until Q3. The race tomorrow will be all about being in the right place at the right time and making the most of the opportunities as they arise. The track suits us and I believe there is plenty of potential to make up a few more places. Days like these are a great motivation for everyone in the team and show we are making progress. We were the top team in the midfield today but it's tomorrow that really counts."

Otmar Szafnauer: "Seventh and eighth on the grid is a well-deserved result and confirms that all our hard work is paying off. We've been competitive since first practice yesterday and improved the car with each session in the lead up to qualifying. It's a track that has always suited us and both drivers love driving here. Qualifying is only part of the job and there's a big task ahead of us tomorrow. It's never an easy race here so converting today's performance into solid points won't be easy, but we will do our best to bring home the result of which we are capable."
