Japanese GP - Domenicali: "A result that does not reflect our potential."
Stefano Domenicali: “We definitely couldn’t say the Gods were smiling on us today! Yellow flags meant that Fernando was unable to secure a place on the front two rows: it’s all part of the game, but that doesn’t lessen the disappointment, at least in the heat of the moment. It’s regrettable because neither of our two grid positions reflect our potential. Felipe could also have secured a good result: we have to understand what happened on his second run in Q2, because it’s strange not to improve on a lap time set with old tyres when new ones of the same type have been fitted. Clearly the way we approach the race changes completely after this afternoon: we will try and score as many points as possible in a race that will be very tough and tricky, especially in terms of tyre wear. As usual, the number one priority will be reliability, because without that, you’re not going anywhere.”
