Gibernau confident with race pace

Sete Gibernau says he is confident he has potential race-winning pace despite qualifying on the second row of the grid for the first time this season. Gibernau ended the session fourth fastest after a problem changing to a qualification tyre left him without enough time to set a fast lap at the end of the final qualifying session.

"If you look at the race times we have done they are really good and at the end, when we were putting the qualifying tyre on, the rear clip came off and I wasn't able to put a fast lap in," commented Gibernau.

"If it wasn't for that I'm sure I could have improved my time but I'm not worried by it. If I have to choose between pole and race rhythm, I'll definitely take the rhythm. I am really happy with the work we have done ahead of this race."
