"I am not happy with the qualifier session. My entire focus was to maintain a steady position in the race and earn points for the team. Despite the tough competition, I kept my cool and concentrated on my skills to make no mistakes on the track. With today's learning, I shall push harder in tomorrow's race to mark my position in the top 10," Rajiv said.

Senthil added: "I was a bit nervous while starting from the last row. However, I applied all my strategies and learned to build a strong pace. While competing with all the international riders, I gained much confidence and recorded my personal best lap time of 2:29.301s at the Sepang circuit."
