04.07.2015: BRITISH GP QUALIFYING DANIIL KVYAT, Position: 7, (3rd Practice 9, 1:34.545)

BRITISH GP – QUALIFYING



 
DANIIL KVYAT, Position: 7, (3rd Practice – 9, 1:34.545)


“Our starting position is the maximum we could have achieved for today. I drove everything out of the car, I don’t think there was anything left to extract. We came here without any big expectations and the car is handling really well this weekend.


I have a good feeling about this track and looking forward to the race tomorrow. The race conditions can be quite challenging but we are hoping to get some good points.”
 


DANIEL RICCIARDO, Position: 10, (3rd Practice – 12, 1:34.896)


“It was a mixed qualifying for me. My fastest time was deleted and it’s something we have to review as I don’t think I went off, we’ll check the video and see. The car felt really nice in the high-speed corners, it was a lot of fun to drive, but we have been struggling through the low-speed corners and I think that’s where we have been losing most of our time, along with the straights.


 If I start from P10, we’ll see what we can do with strategy to finish further up the grid.”
 


CHRISTIAN HORNER
: “Mixed fortunes for us in qualifying today. Dany did an excellent job to secure seventh place on the grid, but for Daniel, life was a bit more complicated as, along with eleven other drivers, he lost his quickest lap time for going over the track limits.


Overall, our pace so far at Silverstone has been reasonably encouraging - we are a bit closer than usual to the Ferraris - and the updates we have introduced here seem to be doing what was expected of them. As a British-based team, it’s been great to see the huge crowds here at our home track, with even more expected to show up tomorrow.


 It’s a fantastic advertisement for the popularity of our sport in this country.”
 
 

 
The top ten things that make SILVERSTONE great - continued! Here’s the countdown to number 1, starting from number 5.

 

5. Camping. Silverstone is intense. But it’s also in tents. Many tents. Thousands and thousands of tents and a raucous, life-affirming party that starts on Thursday and doesn’t end ‘til next week. It’s like Glastonbury – but with headliners you’re not inclined to lob a plastic pint pot full of warm wee at. 
 

4. Ketchup. Another gastronomy stat – though perhaps not quite so haute cuisine – 10,000 litres of tomato ketchup will be consumed at the British Grand Prix – much of it on the 1.08 miles of sausages that’ll be eaten. Fantastic!
 

3. Well-prepared fans. Yes, it’s sunny now but every one of the 120,000 people here is carrying a waterproof coat, an umbrella and a probably a trenching tool and compass. If there’s such a thing as the fair-weather F1 fan, these aren’t those. These are inclement weather, terrible weather, biblical end-of-days weather fans. They’d be in the grandstand if the grandstand were under water. Miserable admittedly – but still waving that flag.
 

2. Views. There’s a tendency for circuits to reserve the best views for the double-platinum VVVVIP prawn-sandwich corporate hospitality mob – but not here. Army boots, a lawn chair and a tartan travel blanket will secure you the same stunning view.


 You’ll see some of F1’s very best corners, where F1 cars are on the absolute ragged edge – you just might need to get here early to secure it. But even that’s good: the British love a good queue. It gives them something else to moan about.
 

1. Priorities. It’s qualifying, there may be exploding tyres or enormous shunts at all 18 corners – but you can guarantee that the major topics of conversation in the grandstands will still be the weather and the traffic – because why change the habits of a lifetime? This is the British Grand Prix – tradition is important.
