F1 QATAR GRAND PRIX
Losail International Circuit
19-21 November 2021




Without the timing of the virtual safety car in Brazil do you believe you would have achieved a fourth straight podium in Sao Paulo?



Yes, we were very unlucky on Sunday to miss the podium, it was basically just down to bad luck. But this is racing, and these things happen so there is no point dwelling on it, I just need to move on and look to Qatar and getting back on the podium there.



Where do you think we can improve as a Team going from Brazil to Qatar?



I think we will do a deep analysis as a Team and Qatar is going to be a very different track to Sao Paulo so things will change. Hopefully we can be a lot stronger there, across the whole weekend.

For me also, it is nice to be back to the normal qualifying format to see how we line up in terms of outright pace.




You have driven at the Losail International Circuit before in GP2 in 2009 and have now reminded yourself of it in the sim, how do you think it will suit the RB16B and does your experience give you an advantage?



I think we will be competitive over there and hopefully give them a hard time. It is a really fast track, with a lot of downforce required so we will see how quick we can be.



I don’t remember driving there very well, it was a long time ago so I don’t believe there is much advantage for me! There are three races remaining of the season and still so much to play for. Brazil was a very fun race so let’s hope for the same this weekend.
