    Quotes from the fastest drivers after today’s qualifying session at Macau

    Rob Huff (pole position): “It was a fantastic result. Macau is my favourite track and to claim a fourth consecutive pole position here is a dream. Once again the team did an amazing job and my car was perfect from the beginning. This is all I needed to do: a better starting position and a few more points compared to my team-mates. But here anything may happen, and generally it does. And we have seen that one race weekend can change the whole frame, as it happened to Yvan in China.”

    Yvan Muller (2nd): “I am pleased with my second position. Yesterday I was not happy with my car, this morning it was the same but we improved step by step, although not enough to win the pole. However to be on the front row is good. I did not regret for any mistake. I had clear laps and was pleased with my times. I don’t think I could be faster than I was. It was the best me and my car could do.”

    Alain Menu (3rd): “Obviously I wanted to fight for the pole. And after Q1 I was confident I could make it. But Rob did a great lap. My goal is still to win the races here. Third is not a bad position, especially with the rolling start. I may benefit from the slipstream, but I’m sure that Rob and Yvan know how to keep their positions at the front…”

    Darryl O’Young (1st in Yokohama Trophy): “I’m happy. It was my best result this year and I have to thank the team for this, because yesterday I made a mistake and they worked until six o’clock this morning to repair my car. They did a fantastic job that enabled me to achieve this result. For Sunday, my target is to stay off troubles at the start and have a couple of clean races.”
