Schumacher and Vettel complain about cars

The Formula 1 Silverstone qualifying turns into a rain thriller. Carlos Sainz shocks the competition and surfs to the Great Britain pole. An even bigger surprise came from Nicholas Latifi, who was heavily counted. For Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) and Mick Schumacher (Haas), however, the wet qualification is a complete failure. The votes on qualifying.

Carlos Sainz (Ferrari/1st)

“It was a good lap. I had a lot of problems with standing water on the ideal line. It was very easy to lose the lap. And difficult to get temperature in the intermediates. In the end I did a lap that I thought she’s nothing special. Which, to be honest, surprised me.”

Max Verstappen (Red Bull/2nd)

“It was a difficult qualifying with the rain, you had to be on the track at the right time. Bad luck with the yellow flag in the end.
But I think the front row is very good for us and we have a good race car with dry and wet conditions.”

Charles Leclerc (Ferrari/3rd)

“Yes, I’m happy for Carlos. He did a great job. I spun on the last lap. You have to do the lap and I didn’t today, so I don’t deserve pole. The pace is there. If we have a good car, everything should go well.”



Sergio Perez (Red Bull/4th)

“Finishing fourth under these conditions is not the end of the world. A good start tomorrow is very important and getting in front of the Ferrari with Max. Of course it also depends on the strategy. Nobody has any information on how the tires will be tomorrow in the dry behave.”

Mattia Binotto (Team Principal Ferrari)

“Congratulations to Carlos, I’m really happy for him. He drove a fantastic lap on this difficult track and in these difficult conditions. He has more confidence in the car and is getting better and better. Charles drove well too – except for the small mistake . But first and third place is always good.”

Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes/5th)

“It wasn’t too difficult to get out on time, but you just have to make sure you have the right rhythm – and I did, until the penultimate lap when the team said I should slow down because of the rain. I think it did It will be difficult against the two Ferraris and Red Bull tomorrow, both are very fast. If I can keep up, maybe I can do something too.”



Nicholas Latifi (Williams/10th)

“These conditions give you more and more chances, a fast car in the rain is also quick in the dry. The team did a great job in getting me into this position, to be in the right place at the right time. I had a right one today good feeling. 10th place was the icing on the cake.”

Jost Capito (Team Principal Williams)

“It’s great for Nic (Latifi, 10th place, ed.), it really gives him a boost. The first races were difficult and driving in Q3 today under the difficult conditions is really great. There has to be You have to be in the right place at the right time, he deserves his luck too! Albon didn’t have any grip for some reason, the temperatures were ok. With the new package it’s obviously difficult in the wet conditions. Tomorrow we’ll have to see in the dry what the new package is really capable of.”



Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin/18th)

“It’s not the same problems as in Canada. But it’s bitter that we’re out so early again. Today we were just too slow, of course that’s a shame. We had such high hopes before the weekend. It’s not just a It’s a bit disappointing. We don’t have the speed on dry land either, maybe we’ll think of something to do with the strategy in the race, but of course it’s going to be difficult when you’re so far behind.”

Mick Schumacher (Haas/19.)

“We had a problem with the car. A small mistake with a big impact. We don’t know what it was yet, but the steering wheel kept pulling a lot to the left. I hope we can fix that for tomorrow, otherwise it will be a tough race. “
