Jolyon Palmer’s 1min 14.696secs in qualifying was the 17th fastest lap on the day, however he gains one place on the grid as a result of penalties elsewhere to start from P16 tomorrow. Here's what he had to say...

Jolyon Palmer, #30, R.S.17-03, Q: P17 (Starts P16) 1:14.696 FP3: P18: 1:15.164

“I felt quite happy with the car today; even though we haven’t looked too competitive, I’ve always been nip and tuck with Nico through the weekend. I’m disappointed with my qualifying position, but I don’t think that’s a true reflection of what we can do. I just kissed the wall on my first set of tyres, which gave me a puncture on the rear left. It was all to do on my final lap, but that time wasn’t good enough for Q2. The cars are pretty wide and the track is pretty narrow so it’s going to be a challenge tomorrow. Anything can happen in Monaco, so let’s see what we can do.”
