Viso Unhappy with Car Performance

BCN Driver Ernesto Viso was bitterly disappointed with his qualifying results today, pointing to potential engine problems as the cause of his lowly starting position of 20th in tomorrow's race

When questioned about his qualifying performance Viso angrily advised: "I think we have some serious engine problems - last time I was here [in pre-season testing] I was quickest, but now I'm twentieth.

"I think the car feels good and I am driving good, but I've been around the top five everywhere and now I'm not. I'm not very happy, and we're talking to Renault later to see if there is a problem there."

In the latter stages of qualifying his mechanics could be seen to be hurriedly adding skirting around the bottom of Viso's car, which left him with time to attempt just one flying lap before the end of the session.

The risk didn't work out - Viso spun on his timed lap and with no time left in the session he brought the car back into the pits.

"We just got crazy with that," he sighed. "We were just trying to find some more time in the car, but to be honest it felt no better afterwards."
