Friday, 29 June, EVIAN (France): Maverick F1 Racing’s Cedric Deguisne is confident that if he can improve his performance in BRM Qualifying the race results will also improve.
Deguisne shares the best result by a Frenchman at a home Grand Prix with Francois Salabert and as France marks its 21st year of hosting a round of the UIM F1H2O World Championship Deguisne’s target is to try to match his fourth place in 2016. “I think where I have to improve is in qualifying. Sometimes I have had bad luck and sometimes I am just not on the pace which means I start from way back. I have to aim to at least get into Q2 and maybe a top ten and I think from there I can improve the race results because I know I can start well.” he said.
“I think we are ready, we have some new propellers to test and I know this water well because I race here many times in S3000 French Championship and in this championship four times and I like the circuit and the unpredictable conditions.
“Of course there is some pressure on us. We are a French Team with French sponsors and we are racing at home at the Grand Prix of France so it is important that we do well this weekend.”
