Having won the pole in Sochi, the Russian pilot Robert Schwartzman, the leader of the personal classification of Formula 3, spoke about his tasks for the upcoming race and how to cope with pressure.

Robert Schwartzman: “My partners are very competitive, I understood that it would be very difficult to win the pole, but still I controlled the situation. Now I want to thank the team, because I had difficulties in training, I did not know how the machine will behave during the qualification, but we adjusted the settings, the behavior of the machine improved noticeably, and I was able to significantly increase speed. It’s great to win the pole on the home track, but this does not mean that the task is completed. There are two more races ahead, you need to perform well in both.

During the qualification, the condition of the track improved with each lap, which was very important. I tried to drive through each circle, as if it were decisive, and in my best attempt, I still made some small mistakes in the third sector, as I attacked to the limit. In general, the car drove faster and faster with each attempt, in the course of qualification I improved my result by several tenths.

How do I deal with the pressure associated with the fight for the title? I understand that I just have to do my job and not make mistakes. I will attack with all my might, but if one of the rivals turns out to be much faster, I will try not to do anything stupid, as this makes no sense. Of course, my goal is to start well and create a gap as quickly as possible.

Possible attacks using DRS? The forecast for Saturday promises rain, and in such conditions it is impossible to use DRS. Of course, on a wet track it will be more difficult to take turns, but let’s see how everything goes. ”
