The track is just as beautiful as last year. I'm pleased with my results today. In terms of me being on top of the timing sheets, people might say, "Here we go again." But remember what happened to Matt in Budapest, he topped every single timing sheet and the lost out on Race Day, so caution is advised.
I'm very happy because I feel that I got rid of all the stresses of it being my home race today. With every run I got more and more into race mode. I was calm and focused. I'm not stressed, I can do my job and fly clean. We found the faster lines and I caught up with Paul's time, which is where we want to be. So we're ready for racing.
I'm happy with my flying, but I'm disappointed by how far ahead Hannes and Paul are. I think I can claw some of it back. We've not done any analysis yet, so there's quite a bit to do. We'll see what lines we've got and see what the data says.
BREAKING NEWS: Qualifying cancelled due to weather
Why be disappointed? As a pilot you know you can't always fly in bad weather. It’s better to accept it with a smile on your face.
It’s always good to get track time, but it’s aviation and you can’t fly in this weather. It’s unfortunate, I feel for all the people that came out to see some racing.
We’re feeling good, we have our set up so we will take what happens as it comes
Frustration is a long word and I'm a little sad, but it's the weather. We took a chance. We race tomorrow and the good thing is the weather looks good. I feel sorry for all the fans who came out here and stayed in these weather conditions. Tomorrow will make up for it and they will get a good race when I fly against Kirby.
GOOD MORNING SPIELBERG!
Guten Morgen Spielberg!
