Formula One’s elimination-style qualifying format caught Haas F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean and Esteban Gutiérrez early, but the duo was still able to outlast the Manor Racing squad of Pascal Wehrlein and Rio Haryanto.
 

Grosjean and Gutiérrez were both poised to potentially advance to Q2, but time ran out on their second runs around the 5.303-kilometer (3.295-mile), 16-turn Albert Park Circuit. That meant the times from those quicker, second runs were not counted, as both drivers were eliminated by the countdown clock.
 

As such, Grosjean was credited with the 19th fastest time (1:28.322) and Gutiérrez was 20th quick (1:29.606). That’s where they’ll start in the 22-driver field for Sunday’s Australian Grand Prix.
 
  

ROMAIN GROSJEAN, driver 8


“I was on a good lap and then suddenly I’m out. I don’t even get a chance to go to the end of the lap. That’s annoying because the car was good, our baseline is good, and in terms of performance, we were clearly able to go through.


We just missed a bit of speed on the turnaround in the garage, so we were massively out of position. This is one of those races where it’s tricky and you need to finish. That’s our first call for tomorrow though. That’s what Gene (Haas, chairman) wants.


From there, everything is possible. It’s a long race and we have new rules with the radio ban, so we just have to try to use the experience.”
 



ESTEBAN GUTIEREZ, driver 21

  
“It was a little frustrating not to see the lap time we achieved reflected in the results. However, we know the potential is there. Overall, I think we’ve had a very tricky weekend, but with more time we’ll become more efficient as a team.


The good thing is we know the lap time was good enough to be further up the grid. Looking ahead, we need to be positive, to keep working hard and moving forward.”
 


  
GUENTHER STEINER, Team Principal:


“I think I’ve never been happy and unhappy at the same time. Today showed the potential of the car, but we were unable to use it because when we went out we made a few mistakes. Our first lap didn’t stick, and when we went out again we missed out by a few seconds.


However, now we know where everyone is, so tomorrow in the race we’ll try to do the best we can to get up there. It was a challenging weekend to get here, but we didn’t do anything completely wrong, which is a success for us as a new team. Now we look forward to the race, and I can’t wait.”
