24th, May 2014 (F1 Plus / Rosie Baillie) - Jean-Eric Vergne will start the Monaco Grand Prix seventh with teammate Daniil Kvyat ninth.

Vergne was pleased with his performance and is confident that both cars can pick up points tomorrow should everything go as planned.

“I'm very happy with today’s Qualifying, certainly for myself but also for the guys, who have deserved some good results for all their hard work. To have both cars in the top ten is a great achievement for everybody.” Vergne

“My last lap on the Super Softs was effected by the yellow flags but the first one was enough to secure P7, which is quite a good position to start the race tomorrow.”

“If we can put everything together, I’m confident we can finish in the points with both cars. I will definitely push to at least maintain my seventh position until the chequered flag.”

Kvyat qualified ninth for his first ever Monaco Grand Prix.

The Russian rookie made contact with the barriers heading down to the chicane during Q1 but managed to get back out on track to get through to Q2.

“This was definitely the messiest Qualifying session of my career. In Q1 I lost the rear all of a sudden and touched the wall, so I had to come back to the pits for a nose change.” Kvyat said.

“I regained confidence straight away though and managed to do two good laps in Q2, which I’m very happy about. Unfortunately Q3 was a bit unlucky, because I was not able to go for a proper lap then, having started off on used Options.”

When I went out for the final run on new Options, I had to back off because of the yellow flag. Obviously this is frustrating because it is a track where you cannot overtake easily, but this is the way it is.”
