21.09.2019: Itís a second-row start for Max and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing at the Singapore Grand Prix while Pierre is well-placed strategically for Toro Rosso after qualifying. Daniil had a tough Saturday as an oil leak required a precautionary and penalty

 
It’s a second-row start for Max and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing at the Singapore Grand Prix while Pierre is well-placed strategically for Toro Rosso after qualifying.
 




Daniil had a tough Saturday as an oil leak required a precautionary and penalty-free PU change after FP3, which the team managed to complete in impressive time before qualifying. After the missed running in final practice he admitted a scruffy lap cost him as he dropped out in Q1 by just 0.015s. The other three Honda-powered cars advanced safely to Q2, where Pierre was competitive throughout and nearly made it into the top ten, missing out by 0.119s.



 He qualified 13th but will start from 12th place following a gearbox penalty for Sergio Perez, meaning he will have free choice of tyres at the start of the race. Alex and Max both made it into Q3, where Max pulled out a strong final lap to beat Valtteri Bottas to a place on the second row, lining up fourth for tomorrow’s race. On his first visit to Singapore, Alex struggled with the balance of his car during the session but recovered well to secure sixth on the grid.
 
 


 
Toyoharu Tanabe
Technical Director, Honda Racing F1   



“Verstappen produced a strong performance to be the highest place Honda driver, once again securing a second row start. It was a solid performance from Albon, considering this was his first visit to this tricky circuit. Kvyat was unlucky today, as his car had an oil leak caused by an issue between the chassis and PU side at the start of FP3. The best option was to change the PU, allowing Daniil to start Q1 as normal. Tomorrow, as always on a street circuit, anything can happen, so we will prepare as well as possible for any eventuality.”
 
 



 
Pierre Gasly
Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda    FP3 : 12th
Q1: 1'39.085
Q2: 1'38.699 pos. 13th


“We knew before Qualifying it would be tight in the midfield to make it to the top 10 here. I managed to do it in Q1 with the ninth-fastest time, then in Q2 we just missed out by a tenth, so it was really close. It’s always a bit frustrating when it’s that close, but I think we did the best with what we had.



Tomorrow we will start the race P12, so we need to look at our strategy options to see where we can take advantage by choosing our starting tyres for the race. I’ll be pushing as much as I can, it’s a long 61 laps where a lot of things can happen, so it will be important to have a clean race and keep fighting until the end to hopefully score some points for the team.”
 



 
Daniil Kvyat
Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda    FP3 : 20th
Q1: 1'39.957 pos. 16th



“I cannot be happy with my Qualifying, the last lap felt very poor and I knew once I crossed the line there wouldn’t be a chance for Q2. I ran into a lot of traffic which was unfortunate as it cost me some time, and a little mistake with the engine switch in Sector 1 did not help.



Not taking part in FP3 hurt us quite a lot and at a track like this every lap counts. I wasn’t really in the rhythm when I went out on track for Q1 and I didn’t have a great feeling in the car. I expect a tough race tomorrow as it can be quite unpredictable around here, however maybe that will work in our favour, so we can have a chance to finish in the points.”
 
 




Alexander Albon
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing    FP3 : 5th
Q1: 1'39.106
Q2: 1'37.865
Q3: 1'37.411 pos. 6th



“I felt like the car was getting away from me a little bit in Q1 and I was chasing a bit of balance. Then towards the final run we changed a few things, the set-up felt better and I started to get my confidence back as the car’s performance improved. That’s all part of the learning curve and I’m understanding more and more about how to make the car go faster around this track. Strategy will be important tomorrow and the tyres don’t look like they’re holding on that well.



The track is also very technical so I’m expecting a long, hard race. Of course I would have liked to have finished a little higher up today and there is still work to do, but overall I felt it wasn’t a bad result. I will focus on the positives and take a cold bath before the race and be ready to fight from P6.”
 
 


Max Verstappen
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing    FP3 : 6th
Q1: 1'38.540
Q2: 1'37.089
Q3: 1'36.813 pos. 4th


“Before the weekend we hoped to qualify higher than the second row but as soon as we were on track we quickly realised that Ferrari and Mercedes were very fast. Yesterday you could see that we all had more to come but clearly they stepped it up more than we did and we didn’t have the pace to challenge for pole. Balance wise the car felt pretty decent but we just didn’t have enough grip which we need to look into.



I didn’t expect Ferrari to be on pole but they did a really good job and we will have to work harder. We came here wanting to fight for the front row and P4 feels a bit disappointing on a track like this where we hoped to be quicker but it was the best we could do and at least we are ahead of one Mercedes. Let’s see, as anything can happen in the race tomorrow.”
