PASTOR MALDONADO ON QUALIFYING IN CANADA

Pastor Maldonado, E23-03. Q: P6, 1:15.329  FP3: P10, 1:17.573
“That was not too bad! We were expecting this kind of result after yesterday’s practice. The performance of the car here seems to be slightly better than at the other tracks. It may be due to a characteristic of our car for this kind of track with the slow corners and very long, fast straights. It’s positive for the team to have both cars on the third row. It’s a long race, we have good pace but the others are competitive too. Normally, we have better pace in the races than in qualifying which is encouraging. We’ll do our race, push hard as always and hopefully get a good result.”
