Toto Talks Singapore

"The result in Italy was a great reward for everyone in the team who has been working tirelessly to improve our performance. We knew that the race in Monza would be another big challenge for us, after the defeat in Spa, but we managed to prevail through a combination of individual skill and fantastic teamwork. However, we also know that we've been strong at Monza in recent years and the track characteristics make the Italian Grand Prix a bit of an outlier.

MARINA BAY STREET CIRCUIT
ROUND 15 OF 21

A rewarding Italian Grand Prix delivered the team’s first double points finish of the year and closes out the European leg of the Formula One season. The pitlane now sets sail for Singapore as the final flyaway races of the year get underway. The tight and tricky Marina Bay Street Circuit presents a real test for man and machine, but when you combine this with Singapore’s hot and humid conditions, as well as the vibrant atmosphere from racing under the lights, means this makes for race you really shouldn’t miss!
For Singapore, Pirelli has made available the soft, ultrasoft and hypersoft tyres.

Daniel Ricciardo “I have learnt to love the challenge of Singapore. For me, the first year I raced there in 2011 was one of the worst races I have been involved in. Physically it was so intense, I just underestimated how hard it would be. I wasn’t in a happy place after that race, it gave me a feeling I never want to experience in a race car again, so I made a promise to myself that I would always come to Singapore over-prepared. In a way this is now something I take pride in; I always get there feeling really sharp and well prepared. I now really like that challenge and I also thrive in the heat. In a strange way, the pain has become pleasure over the years. As everyone knows, I love street circuits. The feeling of driving on the edge, so close to the walls, is something you just can’t get enough of. It’s the original night race and the schedule is always pretty hectic but there is something kind of romantic about going to the track at night and then to bed at four or five in the morning. It’s a place where I also have good races and finish pretty strong. I’ve had four podiums and three second places in a row there, so it’s about time I win the damn thing.”

P8 - ESTEBAN OCON

Q1 1:21.570
Q2 1:21.315
Q3 1.21.099

Esteban: “It was a very close session and I was actually hoping for a bit more than P8 because I think P6 was achievable today. Unfortunately I didn’t maximise the slipstream at the right moment on my final run and that cost me some top speed. Hopefully we can make up those positions tomorrow because our car pace is strong and there should be some overtaking opportunities.”

2018 Formula One Heineken Italian Grand Prix – Qualifying – Saturday

null
01.09.2018
Weather: FP3: cloudy and light rain, then dry, 18-20°C air, 27-31°C track; Qualifying: cloud/sunny and dry, 20-21°C air, 28-34°C track

It was a challenging Saturday at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza for the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team. The team worked hard to repair Marcus Ericsson’s car and both drivers were back on track this morning. After a promising third free practice session, with Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson setting 9th and 16th fastest times respectively, both drivers headed into qualifying feeling confident of their potential. It was a close fight in the midfield with eight drivers covered by one-tenth of a second. Charles Leclerc missed Q2 by 0.002s, ultimately finishing in P17. Marcus did a great job tackling qualifying after having completed only one full session (FP3). He ultimately finished in P19. Marcus Ericsson will take a ten-place grid penalty for tomorrow’s race due to using the 4th engine following his crash in FP2 on Friday. The team is confident of the race pace and with the field so tight, the opportunity is there for both drivers to fight back at Monza.

ITALIAN GP – QUALIFYING

01 SEPTEMBER 2018
MAX VERSTAPPEN, Position: 5th 1:20.615 (Practice 3 – P5 1:21.388)
“Monza is the most difficult track for us, so fifth was what we expected already before the weekend. It’s quite normal where we are, so it’s not a disappointment, we just tried to do the best Qualifying we could. We can’t really do much more, it’s quite painful how much we lose on the straight, but it is what it is. I noticed a difference with the new engine today, maybe one and a half tenths, it’s a little improvement and at least I’m happy with that but for sure we need much bigger steps to be really competitive. We tried to maximise the result but I am quite far from the guys ahead. I didn’t have a tow in Q3 and even though that wouldn’t have changed the final position, at least it would be a little bit closer. I think the gap to Mercedes and Ferrari is too big to do much tomorrow, but we’ll see what happens. You never know what happens in front of you, you just need to be there. We will have a one-stop strategy, I guess like everyone. I don’t think it really matters what we do, if we stay out long or short, I think we just try to have a clean start and take it from there.”
