He added: “We are a bit confused to be honest. My qualifying lap then was slower than what I did yesterday in P2.
“The car felt completely different today, we were struggling with porpoising and we just couldn’t attack any of the corners. It is a real shame because there was the potential in there and yesterday we were quick so it has massively gone away from us today and I don’t really know why.
“It has just been a bit inconsistent to be honest. We thought we went pretty conservative with the set up to make sure we avoided any porpoising but it seemed just as bad as we saw this morning in P3.
“It was going all the way through the corners in Turn 4 and Turn 5 so you just couldn’t attack into the braking zones so it is not making a lot of sense at the moment. When we get it into the window it is fast but I am just a bit disappointed for myself and for the team, I think the potential is there.”
