A1 Team Great Britain driver, Robbie Kerr has said that they would have qualified in the top three at Dubai if it wasn't for a technical issue in the fourth and final session.

Speaking after securing fifth on the grid for the sixth round of the A1 Grand Prix of Nations, Kerr though was still positive.

"In the practice sessions we were putting in really good times on used tyres and we had real consistency and swapping places with France between first and second," he noted. "In qualifying we went out and the track conditions were different - a bit slippery so we made some adjustments.

"Then I was on my fast lap [in the first session] when the red light came on which was disappointing. For the second session we were getting used to the track, then we had new tyres for the remaining two attempts. We had a good run on the third stint and for the fourth we had a little technical problem that we're looking into that lost us a few tenths.

"It's a shame we're only fifth when we should have been in the top three but I'm looking forward to the race. We've got a good race car. If I can get another good start we should be right up there."
