MONTREAL, June 8th, 2013 (F1plus/Gustavo A Roche).- It was a tough day for everyone at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, from the drivers, to the teams’ crews, the fans and even us at the media center. We all have to deal with the hardship of the never-ending drizzly conditions.

Gabrielle and carlos named their undercover bathroom after her. cheap kamagra pharmacy I recently wanted to make a overall tummy as immunity of my shots.

Such and atmospheric setting is hard to figure out and Force India was able to manage that, maybe even partially, with one of its drivers Adrian Sutil who was able to earn an eight-place start.

“It was a tough qualifying session and very hard to judge the conditions. Some parts of the track were wet and other areas were dry, so it was difficult to know how much to push.” Sutil said.

We spoke to the German and he believed that even if he did well after the red flag, some drivers did not properly line up for the re-start that felt like a race was just green lighted.

“The most important lap for me was just after the red flag: we all queued up at the end of the pit lane – a bit like a race start – and I knew I had one chance to make Q2. Fortunately it worked out well for me.”

The other side of the coin, in terms of emotions came from Mr Di Resta who had a little outburst at the end of his session.

He said: "We spent far too much time trying to fix a problem, when the conditions were good, when the car could have run.

"It's the fault of the team again. It's just not good enough..."

The scot felt it was more on the VJM-06 and that a good opportunity was lost. His words clearly stated his disappointment with the result.

“It’s very frustrating to be starting in P17 so we need to sit down and analyze exactly what happened. Something went wrong with the seamless shift software during my first run in Q1 and when I came in the team tried to fix it.

“We lost valuable time trying to find a solution. Meanwhile the track was getting faster and faster. By the time I had got back out it was raining again and therefore we missed the track at its best.” Di Resta said.

In spite the situation, the Scot remains optimistic for tomorrows race.

“There’s not much you can do in that situation, but it’s a massive disappointment given how competitive the car was yesterday.


“I’ll try and take the positives because you can overtake on this track and the car is strong. We need to come up with a masterplan tonight and I will be pushing hard tomorrow.” He added.
