“The Spa circuit is defined by the surrounding nature and it’s one of my favourite tracks. I was very happy to have won there last year. Spa offers every type of racing corner; ultrafast, medium-fast and slow chicanes, that alternate with fast straights. The difference in altitude and the unpredictable weather really make the track a big challenge – and it’s one that every racing driver loves to compete on. It’s good to be back after the summer break.”
“Spa is the best track to have after a break and it’s extremely rewarding for drivers at that venue. It’s obviously remained pretty much unchanged for some time and it has a lot of character. Eau Rouge is a very special part of the track, the spectators love going to watch the cars there and I would encourage anyone to see it live once in their lives – it’s mind blowing. It’s one of the classic tracks where you feel like an F1 car belongs on the circuit. We’re looking forward to going there and challenging for the victory.”
