FERRARI SEVENTH IN SACHSENRING QUALIFYING

It was a positive Friday for Matteo Ferrari, who with the fourth place in the combined free practice managed to earn the direct seed to Q2. Then a series of yellow flag situations prevented the #11 from setting the perfect time, but the feeling is good and, from seventh on the grid, he will be able to put up a fight in tomorrow’s two races.

Forced to go through Q1, Alessio Finello logged a 1’26.944secs lap-time: he was second when the session was interrupted by a red flag. As the action resumed, he could not improve his best lap and found himself third and out of Q2 for only two tenths of a second. He will start tomorrow’s encounters from eleventh place on the grid, ready for two comeback performances. 

7th – MATTEO FERRARI #11 (1’26.597s)

“The most positive Friday of the year so far: we did a good qualifying, too bad because so many riders crashed and consequently there were plenty of yellow flag situation, which kind of cost me some feeling with the tyres. I still managed to improve my time, I gave my best. I had a small crash at turn one at the end, I was pushing while trying to find that something extra to get a few tenths faster. Now we need to understand what we’re missing to stay with the top three, but we have a good pace for tomorrow and I know we can play our part in the races. I’m happy with this Q2 and with the seventh place.”

11th – ALESSIO FINELLO #72 (1’26.944s)

“Last year’s Sachsenring weekend was one of the toughest of the season. The goal for this year was to improve: we managed to get a good feeling straight away as I even battle for a spot in Q2. We missed it for very little but I’m happy, the gap from the frontrunners is getting smaller and smaller. I keep growing, as last year I was battling at the back, now for Q2. Tomorrow we’ll start from eleventh place, we’ll try to get a good start and do two good races.”
