In the final practice session of the weekend, Lance focused on Medium and Soft runs ahead of the all-important afternoon’s Qualifying.
Completing 18 laps of the Dutch circuit, Lance delivered a 1.12.773 to end Free Practice Three in 12th position.
In Q1, Lance took to the track on a set of fresh Softs, setting a 1.12.036 to take him into 10th position.
Switching to another set of Soft tyres, Lance improved on his previous best time to guarantee a place in Q2 in seventh place.
Lance continued to find time in Q2, setting a 1.11.416 on his first run to take him into P4 but a lockup on his second flying run caused him to abandon it and return to the pits.
Returning to the track for a final run, the Canadian was unable to improve on his original time but still clinched a spot in Q3 in eighth.
Unfortunately, Lance’s Qualifying ended prematurely as a hydraulic issue prevented him from joining the session, forcing him to 10th on the grid.

“It is a shame that we had the hydraulic issue in Q3 because we had the pace for a top-eight result today – and that would have been great given our recent difficulties in qualifying. The car was really fun to drive today – the team have done a fantastic job with the set-up and balance – so it is great to see everyone being rewarded for their efforts. This starting position should give us a good chance to score some decent points in the Grand Prix tomorrow.”
