CANADA GRAND PRIX QUALIFYING

FERRARI THE ONLY TEAM TO GET THROUGH Q1

USING THE SUPERSOFT TYRES ONLY

 

ONE PIT STOP EXPECTED AS FASTEST STRATEGY FOR THE RACE

MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING

“Today, we saw the fastest lap ever of Montreal that improved on the 2016 pole by more than 1.3 seconds: a remarkable difference given that this has been gained purely from traction, as there aren’t many big corners here. The times were extremely close in a thrilling session, just as we saw in FP3. The challenge in Montreal consisted of getting the front and rear tyres working in harmony: as the rears are normally working harder than the fronts. Hooking them up together was key to a fast time in qualifying. Montreal isn’t one of the races where pole position means everything, so the prospects for the grand prix remain wide open.”
