Remy Gardner powers to fourth row grid slot in Austria
Tech3 Racing team rider Remy Gardner found back to a fantastic rhythm today in Spielberg. After superbly leading the first session of the day in difficult conditions this morning, the young Australian performed impressively in Qualifying to conquer 11th position and therefore a start from the fourth row for tomorrow’s Austrian Grand Prix at 12.20 local time.
“This has been a pretty great day. In FP3 I ended up on top in the wet and it was good fun. Then it dried up for Qualifying and to be honest, I was a bit nervous because we weren’t so good in the dry before. But we had a direction and found a solution. On the first exit I didn’t get a great run and I knew inside myself that I could improve, so the last run we went out, did a decent lap time, really close to P3 and I ended up eleventh, which is not too bad. I think we can have a strong race tomorrow.”
