Abdulaziz Abdulla, the leader of the championship in Qatar National Road Racing Championship was the fastest driver yesterday in the Qualifying practice at Losail International Circuit.
In the sixth round of this championship, the Qatari driver made a lap time of 2.23.571 with his Porsche Carrera. 'I made some little adjustments in my suspension that I tried in the last track day. Today in the free practice, I used the first alignment and in the qualifying I tried the second one and it was much better so I reduced more than one second the laptimenand the car is more stable. The gap between Talal is more than one minute so I think it will be fine for tomorrow race. I am happy with my car and result despite the windy weather and the sand that is not good for the grip of the tyres.' Abdulaziz said at the end of the sessions.
In the second place of the grid, there will be Talal Wehbe, who made a time of 2.25.047. The Lotus driver is second in the standings with 33 points, only three points less than Abdulaziz. 'I had to work hard on the set up of the car and I didn't had enough time to do it properly. There is a lot of wind that is why my speed was very bad at the end so I cannot push much, but I improved from my practice and I qualified second. My main concern is to beat Abdulaziz to get the championship' Talal expressed at the end of the qualifying.
Pavel Nedobety made the third best time in the Qualifying session with his Lotus car. ' The conditions are very different from last rounds with this sandstorm, but it is the same for all drivers so we have to adapt. I am quite comfortable as I didn't had the best tires for today and my time is not too bad, so I hope it will be better tomorrow.' Nedobety said yesterday.
In the Production class, the fastest driver was David Walker with a Honda Integra and he will be fourth in the grid for the race.
