Japanese GP - Fry: "A day when everything went wrong"

Pat Fry: “It’s been one of those days where it seems everything that can go wrong does go wrong. Felipe was fast all day, but at the moment when he should have made the most of his second set of Soft tyres, he was unable to exploit all their potential: we now need to understand why this set of tyres did not live up to expectations. In Q3, we were hit by the yellow flag, which deprived Fernando of the chance of at least setting the fourth fastest time, a result that was within his grasp. Clearly, starting from these positions on the grid, we can expect a very difficult race, also when one takes into account that our closest competitor in the championship is on pole. We worked a lot over the past two days to find the right car configuration and it seems we have found a good compromise: it’s just a shame we were not able to demonstrate that fully when it came to the lap times. Putting this disappointment behind us, now we are concentrating on race preparation, always keeping in mind that the points are only given out tomorrow afternoon...”
