Salvador Servià will have to comply with dispute the classification to define the positions from the tenth to the thirty-third after not being able to achieve one of the best nine times in the first phase of qualifying on Saturday.
The Catalan driver started very promising, reaching an average of 229.271 mph on the first lap, but soon the Dallara for Rahal Letterman Lanigan began to lose grip and Servià had to work a lot with the steering wheel to stay safe from the walls.
Finally, Servià got an average of 227.150 mph, down to the 24th square, something he hopes to improve this Sunday. “we Completed a good batch to prepare for the day tomorrow (Sunday). I hope we are in the fight for the tenth position, which is what we got last year. I’m happy with the car, we just need to also useful to tune a little and we should be there. I think we have a good car to race, both Graham (Rahal) and I have been very satisfied and we have completed good runs in traffic, which is when it counts”, expressed hope that the Catalan language.
The bet by a set-up alternative was risky, something he was well aware Servià. “We lost the first practice session of the morning by the rain, and we changed many things on the car, so we were going a little blindly. We knew that to get to enter among the first nine without training it was a risk sort with the set up that we had”, said after completing his four-lap launched.
we Knew that we would be the limit to enter between the new first, we tried it, but obviously it did not work.
Servià is left with the feeling that the car has speed and you only need to get more consistency in the face of classification that will begin at 20:45 cet. “The speed was there in the first round, but I began to lose balance, basically on all sides. We wanted to show how fast was the car and what we did in the first round. We knew that we would be the limit to enter between the new first, we tried it, but obviously it didn’t work”, said the Spanish.
