No words again.. Another top 3 lap ruined by someone’s else mistake not watching it’s mirrors. Yes he got penalized but I now have to start 12th. Feeling sorry for all the team because we’ve been doing a great job and can’t get a rest. Car 11 coming through the field tomorrow 👊🏼
After dominating Free Practice this morning, Vips qualified in seventh place.
His three-place grid-drop will now see him start tomorrow’s Feature Race in P10.
