Ready for tomorrow’s challenge on the track
October 13, 2012
From Japan to Korea without a break, working highly concentrated: the last days between the two GPs were like this. It’s an intense period and we’re working with lots of concentration on our single-seater, although we’ve only a couple of days. We were lucky that the rain didn’t put a spoke in our wheel and we could carry out our work programme with the F2012 and understanding the circuit a little bit better.
There’s a good mood inside the team despite the outcome for Alonso in the race in Suzuka, which almost brought down to zero his advantage in the Drivers’ standings, while Felipe appears to be combative again.
This is not something that should weigh on our shoulders. Quite the opposite, this is a proper stimulus for us.
Vettel, as he showed again today on the track, is a very strong competitor. This will be a very interesting challenge.
And then there are other title contenders and Massa, who has shown that he can give us a hand in the race for the Drivers’ title.
Today was a good day regarding the qualifying, because the Red Bulls lap time is hardly faster, although fourth and sixth position on the grid for tomorrow’s race don’t really satisfy us, considering that we were convinced that we could do better.
Tomorrow we’ll definitely see a spectacular start and an even more spectacular race, because the top drivers can be found in the top positions on the grid.
With four points more in the standings one can’t really calculate too much. So we just continue to give it our all, collecting as many points as possible.
Fernando and Felipe are very determined and ready for the competition of this Grand Prix on a challenging track. So far we’re satisfied with the F2012’s performance and we’re convinced that tomorrow we’ll race on a very high level.
