At Jeddah, none of the Williams drivers managed to get into the second part of qualifying, and Logan Sargent couldn’t meet 107% of the pole time at all, as he committed a foul on his fast lap, and his result got cancelled. But the stewards of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix did allow the American debutant to start, given the speed he showed in training.
Alex Albon (17th): “During qualifying we had trouble warming up the tires and now we have to find out what happened. All this is frustrating because before that, from the beginning of the weekend, we showed good pace.
When we talk about the tasks for tomorrow, as our car works efficiently at the distance of the race, I think we will be able to do a good job.
Of course today was not the best day, but I hope tomorrow we can improve the situation.”
Logan Sargent (unclassified): “I did a very fast lap, but my time was cut because I passed the line between the pit lane entrance, although not by much.
It’s frustrating because I haven’t played anything. However, I still had two laps to show the desired result, but I couldn’t do it, so I apologize to the team, because today they deserved more.
But we must leave the failures in the past, try to find and recoup the positive in today’s events. Still, we have a fast car, it’s capable of good speeds on the straights, and on top of that the race in Jeddah can go in a crazy scenario, so we might have a chance to regain a lot of positions.
Although I have made it difficult for myself, I am optimistic and will try to get a good result for the team.”
