James Winslow, HPRacing by Monza Garage, JS P4 #4, pole position:
“It was a fantastic session for us. I am a coach at Monza Garage [Ray-Yu Wang] and Team Virage [George King]. It has been a good day so far. We are first with Monza Garage and second on the grid with George King. And the coach is showing the young boys that he can still drive, so hopefully, I can keep my job for a few more years!”
Maximus Mayer, #10 RLR MSport, JS2 R, pole position
“I was pretty confident and positive going into qualifying with the speed we had in free practice. It is my first time here, and I am delighted with the result. It is such a mega awesome track, so I am truly pleased and looking forward to the race.”
