Lotus showed a good performance in qualifying for the 6 Hours of Sao Paulo.

Vitantonio Liuzzi (#32) and Thomas Holzer (#31) qualified their Lotus LMP2 cars in fifth and tenth position respectively at today’s qualifying in Interlagos. The Italian was just three tenths off the pole position in LMP2 class, which is a good result for the team.

The track conditions have changed a lot compared to the practice in the morning and the track temperature was very high. Consequently, the balance of the car was different, so it was difficult to set a better lap time.

The race will start tomorrow at 12:00 o’clock local time.

Thomas Holzer, Race driver #31:
“We were concentrating on the race setup for the car, the qualifying result is not so important for us. The track has changed a lot compared to the morning session, so it was quite tricky to drive. It is going to be a long race tomorrow and a lot can happen.”

Vitantonio Liuzzi, Race driver #32:
“We didn’t bring out the best of the car today. We could not improve in the second part of the qualifying when the track was quicker because we used the tyres too much in the beginning. We could have done better, but we are just three tenths off of pole position in LMP2 category. It was my first qualifying and I will learn from this.”
