Sauber rookie, Esteban Gutierrez, says he needs to improve his qualifying performances to ensure he benefits from the cars strong race pace on Sunday’s.
Gutierrez says knows he must perform better in qualifying to make the most of the Sauber’s pace on race day: “What I can say is that I have to improve in qualifying,” he told Formula1.com.
“Getting a perfect lap – that is something I still have to work on. In the race it hasn’t been that bad – the speed has actually been pretty good. When I spoke of balance before, getting the right balance between qualifying and race is high on my agenda.”
“If you know that your car is capable of finishing in tenth, 11th or 15th position, then being able to deliver that result – and hopefully at times doing better by taking advantage of the mistakes of others – is what brings the real achievement and what is important is to move on to higher levels.” he added.
