7th June, 2014 (F1 Plus / Rosie Baillie) - Jean-Eric Vergne is happy with his eighth place grid position for the Canadian Grand Prix and says it is a reward for the hard work the team have put in.

“Today we have done great in qualifying. The field is tight so you really have to drive the perfect lap, getting the best out of the car." Vergne said.

"The team and I managed to achieve our goals and this is the result that rewards all the hard work that we have put in."

The Frenchman is hoping to maximise on his starting position and pick up some more points.

"To start from 8th position on the grid is very promising and I will certainly do my best to finish the race and bring home some good points.”

On the other side of the garage Daniil Kvyat is feeling disappointed with his 15th place qualifying position.

The Russian said he found the car difficult to drive and suffered with brake problems.

"during Qualifying I found the car difficult to drive and I experienced some brake problems." Kvyat said.

"We will have to analyse this closely tonight, but I’m sure we will be fine for tomorrow."

"It is not ideal to start from P15, but as always, I will give it my 100 percent and aim to finish the race as high as possible.”
