Sauber drivers frustrated with yellow flags

By on Saturday, October 13, 2012

The Sauber duo of Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi lamented yellow flags during the final moments of Q2.

Both Perez and Kobayashi felt that the caution for Daniel Ricciardo's stranded STR cost them a shot at making it through to the top ten shootout.

"It is a shame, as we were so close to getting into Q3 but, of course, I had to back off because of the yellow flags in the last sector", said Perez.

"I would have been easily five tenths faster but I had to back off when the yellow flags came out", said Kobayashi. "I am quite disappointed, especially as we had improved the car for Q2. In Q1 initially I had problems with oversteer, but our set up changes worked out nicely."

Both drivers are optimistic of progress during the race.

"Well, the positive side is that we have saved a set of fresh tyres for the race", said Mexican Perez.

"However, here we have a track which allows overtaking and the race is always a different story", added Kobayashi.
