DS Virgin driver Sam Bird admits that both Dragon drivers were unbeatable in today’s qualifying session for the Punta del Este ePrix. However, the Brit is pleased with his third position on the grid for the race.
“Jerome [D’Ambrosio] was incredible today. I had no chance, he was simply unbeatable. I might have had the possibility to be ahead of Duval, but still, third place is a nice surprise for all of us”, Bird says.
“I’m surprised by the performance of our car. It is not bad, but it’s hard to set consistent times.”
The 28-year-old is going to start from third on the grid today, outqualifying his rivals Di Grassi and Buemi in the Super Pole session.
