One word: pressure. With the new shorter Q system riders are now under bigger pressure to put in "the perfect lap" to qualify well for the race. Of the front runners I knew Dani would suffer the most with the new system due to several factors including weaker mind (folding under pressure) and another important factor is he needs more laps/time than his rivals to get the tires up to temperature. It's the 3rd time in 4 races he has problems in Q. Expect it to continue.
