Good qualifying for Jean-Eric Vergne

In the difficult Spa-Francorchamps track, Jean-Eric Vergne did a good performance in qualifying, after providing an effective job in the only free practice session performed in the dry.

Fifteenth, JEV will be positioned ahead of his teammate on the starting grid of the Grand Prix of Belgium, Sunday at 14:00.

“I think that was a solid performance for me and the team today.” Explained the Toro Rosso driver. “We know where we are compared to the others, therefore even after a long break, we didn’t expect to suddenly find ourselves in Q3.”

“I think, personally, I did a good job. I have struggled a bit with qualifying since the start of the year, but race by race I have made progress and today, to finish ahead of my team-mate, shows that I am getting better at it.”

“We plan to be aggressive tomorrow and grab any opportunity that comes our way on track. I would really like to bring home some points, but that might be rather difficult.”
