Mattia Binotto: Suzuka needs a maximum in everythingOctober 9, 2019
Ferrari proved that their car is fast on different types of tracks – and they expect to confirm this in Suzuka …
Mattia Binotto, team leader: “In Sochi, we were fast and won the fourth pole in a row, but we understand that in order to succeed in Suzuka, we need to work perfectly in all aspects. We are preparing for the weekend, trying to get the maximum out of the car in absolutely everything. If it works out, we must be as competitive as in the latest Grand Prix.
Sebastian and Charles like this track. There is something special in it – from a series of turns from one to another turns in the first sector, to a fantastic reception that we have fans during the whole weekend. We hope that they will enjoy the upcoming Grand Prix. “
Charles Lecler: “Japan is a good place for racing, especially for Japanese fans. They passionately and emotionally support us – from this point of view, the stage can be called unique.
Last year, the Japanese weekend turned out to be difficult for me, because for the first time after the Jules Bianchi accident, I ended up in Suzuka. These sad memories of what happened five years ago will always be associated with my Grand Prix of Japan.
The track is interesting and technically challenging, one of the best in terms of aerobatics. Her configuration combines high-speed straight lines with different cornering options and a hairpin. According to its characteristics, the track differs from those that we spoke recently – we will see how our latest innovations work, especially in the field of aerodynamics. ”
Sebastian Vettel: “For me, the track in Suzuka is the most favorite during the season. Only it has a configuration in the form of an eight, reminding me of the tracks on which I played as a child. But besides this, there is nothing childish here, it includes several fantastic sites, a protracted 130R turn and the “eski” in the first sector, turning into each other.
Another unique feature of the Grand prix of Japan – incredible fans. No matter how early you arrive at the circuit, they will be waiting for you. They are very kind to us – this is amazing.
And the last, but no less important factor: the weather in Suzuka is unpredictable, it can change during the race, which will make it difficult, but very interesting. ”
