Lance Stroll: “I think we can be happy with our performance today. In Q2, I put in a good lap to progress into Q3, but part of me is disappointed that my lap [in Q3] didn’t come together in the last sector. But from P10 we should be in a good position tomorrow to fight for the points. With a new race there are always a lot of unknown factors at play and there are definitely opportunities. However, I have to say that after so much excitement leading up to this race, I’m all set to go racing. †

Sebastian Vettel: “I think we had more speed in the car today, so I’m disappointed to have to leave qualifying in Q2. I had a little wobble in the last sector on my last attempt which, given the timing, cost me a place in Q3. The car seems to be performing well here, but tomorrow is when it counts and I hope we can score some points there.”

Mike Krack, Team Principal: “It’s great that Formula 1 is here in Miami and we’re glad we had a good qualifying session today. Lance put in a nice lap in Q2 to get through to Q3, but he was unable to improve and will therefore start tomorrow’s race from P10. After our double points finish at Imola, I think it’s fair to say we’ve made some progress with the issues affecting our car here in Miami. Seb also showed decent pace, but he made a chicane error on his fastest lap in Q2 and was unable to advance to Q3 as a result. Nevertheless, we are looking forward to tomorrow and a long, hot race. We are going for points.”
