(cafetheology.org) – Williams had already been worried that it might come thick in Singapore. The fact that it is only in the qualifying session for the 14th race of the Formula 1 season 2017 but only for the penultimate row, is then but once again a harsh damper. "There are no excuses for failing to set up the set-up," says technical director Paddy Lowe. The drivers Felipe Massa and Lance Stroll report on a "frustrating" qualifying on the road. "The car was certainly not competitive today," notes Massa. "But that's more to the extreme than to my mistake, which is very frustrating, we know that we have to do our job best, but today it was not possible – and we have to attribute that to ourselves." The Brazilian already had early in Q1 for a fright second, when he suffered a tire damage with a wall contact. At the beginning of the race, I had a lane race on the track – that was obvious in turn 21. "I tried everything", he describes his qualifying. "I had a lot of fun, and I had the wall touched, then I had to change to the box and the tires, then I came back and was really on a good lap time for our car it cost me half a second, so I did not come in Q2. "With a time of 1: 44,014 minutes, he missed the move in Q2 by 0.387 seconds. Teamkollege Stroll was slower again around seven tenths of a second. The teenager had to fight with the road conditions: "The track has evolved and changed very much, it was quite different from the other sessions, because I did not get it right, the car is just not so good already on other routes, as in Hungary, it's just frustrating. "At the Italian Grand Prix the Canadian was still starting from the first row. On Sunday, he will have only the Sauber behind him. "We have been hoping that we can make it in Q2, but the Pace is simply not and the car is impossible to drive, it is very nervous and we get no stability "It will cost us a lot before we get it under control." Technician Lowe explained what his Schtzlinge had to fight, among other things: "The bulk of the round is about getting the tires to temperature. The tires do not stay all the way round in the right window, so we have to start the round on tires that are too cold to keep them in the last sector The difficulty is: "The last thing you want is a stallion in turn 1 – and that happens easily." Nevertheless, there is still a lot to be desired L owe optimistic about the race: "I think there is a better pace in the car than we showed today. We can still have a good race. It is a long race that usually happens a lot. The cars and drivers are suffering especially in the last half hour. So if we are able to go through to the end, there is still a chance to score points.
