Emanuele Smurra is not having the best start to the season as his fast lap was spoilt by a sudden shower.
"The rain started coming down just as I was on my fast lap and with a clear track ahead of me. It was a shame as I was going well in the car on a circuit that I like a lot even though it is new for me.
Starting from eighth is not the best position to be in because it is not easy overtaking here; this makes the qualifying result even harder to take. Even though I had a bit of bad luck with the rain, I hope that it buckets down tomorrow to mix things up a little".
