1 Mins read

Nick Heidfeld has admitted he is disappointed with his first qualifying session since last season, after qualifying 15th for tomorrow's Singapore Grand Prix.

The Sauber driver, who has replaced Pedro de la Rosa for the final five races of the season, reckons he could have got more from the car.

“I am not completely happy,” he said. “I hoped for more and I think I didn't get the most out of the car.” However Heidfeld, despite starting the race five places lower than team mate Kamui Kobayashi, says he is optimistic that his race pace will be more competitive.

“There is a lot to learn and I'm sure we will be benefiting from it soon. I'm not too pessimistic for the race. The long runs in free practice under race conditions were quite good. Let's see what we can do tomorrow.“

Meanwhile Kobayashi was more pleased with his efforts, having got into Q3 for the first time since the Turkish Grand Prix in May.

“I am very happy,” said the Japanese. “I managed to do a couple of good laps in qualifying. The team did a great job in improving [the car after practice], so in qualifying it was good and I think my result is the best we could achieve today.”
