Alfonso de Orléans-Borbón, president of Racing Engineering: "Another incredible performance from Fabio. His final attempt for pole was the right one and he was able to pull it off. When you need the best of him, he can deliver. What a talent, especially with such a strong line-up of drivers this weekend. As for Nathanaël, sadly traffic and some small mistakes did not allow him to show his full potential as in testing in Barcelona and this morning. Although, I am not too worried since I think tomorrow he will show his full potential and plough through the field. He has the talent to do it. Once again, I want to thank everyone in the team for a wonderful job. Now let's get ready for tomorrow, where it really counts."
Fabio Leimer: "Everything went really perfect. We already saw we were quick during free practice and that everything would be possible in qualifying. I also knew that I myself could still go quicker. In qualifying everything fell into place and I would like to pass a big thank you on to the team as they gave me a really, really good car. I am really happy as it was actually my last possible lap when I set the fastest time. After that we had the red flag and there were no possibilities to improve anymore. I am also really happy as this is my first pole position. Now we will see what's possible for tomorrow's race, but the most important thing is to start in front. I am really, really happy."
Nathanaël Berthon: "Free practice was really good today. I was not pushing to the maximum and therefore it was not so bad. In qualifying I didn't have any clear lap, but I guess it was the same for everyone. I have to push more in the next qualifying, if there is another race in the future. I am not satisfied with today's qualifying result, but the lap was not terrible and I am not so far away. I am sure it will be better in the race."
