Constantly motivated to do better
June 25, 2011
Two weeks after the Canadian Grand Prix we're here in Valencia, convinced of our strength and optimism regarding a good result on the track. Despite the last, disappointing race considering the result, due to bad luck, which mainly conditioned Fernando's race, our drivers' performance in Montreal was really good, which helped us and pushed us to work even harder for this important European Grand Prix. This permanent track here in Valencia is really challenging and aerodynamics plays a determining role, while this weekend there's also the unknown factor of the new Pirelli medium compound, with its premiere here in Spain. After an excellent Friday with Fernando as a protagonist setting the fastest lap time and Felipe with some problems, today we didn't really make it beyond a forth and fifth place on the starting grid. The lap times driven by our drivers are in line with the fastest, but there is a little bit of disappointment, especially considering that there are six single-seaters just seven tenths of a second apart. So there's lots of optimism for this eighth race of the season and everything's set to go well. Naturally it's always very difficult to make predictions, but Fernando and Felipe are both extremely focused for a challenging race.
