Renault DP World F1 Team will start tomorrow’s 2020 Formula 1 Emirates Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix with Daniel Ricciardo fifth and Esteban Ocon twelfth following a busy day of running at the Autodromo di Enzo e Dino Ferrari on the outskirts of Imola, Italy.
“I’m very happy with today’s result. We found speed as the session went on. I’d honestly say it was my best qualifying lap this season. This track is amazing. Qualifying fifth was also super important for track position as we can have a really good battle in the race tomorrow since the group around us is very close. If we make a strong start, then we could have a very solid race.”, said D. Ricciardo.
Meanwhile, Esteban Ocon was dissapointed of his performance: “I’m disappointed with the qualifying result today; I didn’t see it coming, especially as we had a good practice session this morning and we did Q1.
It wasn’t the best first lap in Q2 and we have to review what happened on the second lap. Still, there is plenty of opportunity tomorrow. We have free tyre choice for the race and we’ll see what happens to come back into the points.”
