German GP: Qualifying team notes - McLaren

NEWS STORY
27/07/2019

Carlos Sainz: "Obviously very happy with this qualifying. Especially because today I think our competitors had a bit of an edge over us. However, we managed to react very well throughout the session and I put together some solid laps to progress and put ourselves into Q3.

"We are in a good starting position for tomorrow. Everyone is speculating about the weather conditions for the race, but no matter what comes we'll be ready to fight for another points finish."

Lando Norris: "I'm obviously disappointed. It's the first time I've missed out on Q2 – frustrated because of that and annoyed because it's not giving me a very good starting position for tomorrow.

"There was more potential in the car as Carlos showed by getting into Q3. I just didn't hook the lap up today when it mattered. I'll just have to make up for it tomorrow."

Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "Friday's sessions were tricky for us in the heat but we did our homework overnight and, in cooler conditions today, we were able to extract more performance from our car. After FP3 we knew it would be a another very close battle in the midfield, where progress through qualifying would depend on maximising every single detail.

"Qualifying P7 and P16 obviously leaves us with mixed feelings. In all fairness to Lando, we had an issue with the battery pack which compromised his ability to get through to Q2 and his quali result overall. With Carlos, we got everything out of the car and he did a great job putting the laps together to secure a good starting position. We're still aiming to fight for points with both cars tomorrow and we've also seen the weather forecast, so we can expect an exciting race for the fans here in Germany."
