UIM F1H2o World Championship leader Shaun Torrente was pushed out of the Q3 shoot-out by his team-mate Thani Al-Qemzi in the dying seconds of the BRM Qualifying session for the Grand Prix of Sharjah on Khalid Lagoon on Thursday afternoon.
He will start the race from the uncomfortable confines of seventh after complaining that his DAC’s electrics failed leaving him stranded off the course when he needed to post a quick lap.
Everything was going to plan and we were going forward in Q2.
I knew I needed to be quicker but we lost the dash, the trim, we lost everything. I came in directly because we cannot run like that.
We tried to put a new battery in and nothing worked at all.
Now I better get forward on Saturday….
