Toro Rosso Prepare For The Alguersuari Grand Prix


Actually, Jaime shares the limelight with the highest level of Spanish F1 involvement we have ever seen. Top of the pile has to be Fernando Alonso: a double world champion and a Ferrari driver ticks all the right boxes. Then we also have Pedro de la Rosa, who like Alguersuari is not just Spanish, but from Barcelona itself and finally there’s the Hispania Racing Team. Given that the Iberian media are an excitable lot, they will probably go into meltdown this weekend.

BARCELONA RACE PREVIEW


Hingham, UK 30th April 2010
Two weeks is a short time in F1, but that’s how long Lotus Racing has had to fit in several months of hard work. Since China, the team has, in order, beaten the Icelandic ash cloud, unpacked and repacked 34 tonnes of freight, run an intensive series of tests on Chassis T127-02, fitted an entire upgrade package to the race cars, taken delivery of its newly painted race trailers (in a matching colour scheme to the race cars) and flown the race team back to Barcelona.

False polemics


Maranello, 19 April – Some news outlets used some statements by Felipe Massa after the Chinese GP, which were somehow taken out of context: obviously someone is trying to create bad blood between the two drivers after Fernando Alonso's overtaking manoeuvre of his teammate at the pit lane entrance on lap 19. Furthermore both drivers were very clear after the race: this episode won't change anything at all regarding the relationship between the two. Felipe and Fernando are travelling back to Europe on the same flight, together with the Scuderia's technicians.

Checkmated by the volcano


Shanghai, 19 April – The day after the Chinese Grand Prix is dominated by insecurities as far as the return home of the Formula 1 teams is concerned, due to the volcanic ash blocking the sky over Europe. Yesterday only some of the numerous members of the teams managed to get on board of planes leaving for Europe: for the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro Team Principal Stefano Domenicali and Technical Director Aldo Costa. The remaining members of the team will leave gradually: a first group tonight and another one early tomorrow morning, followed by the third and last group on Wednesday morning. Where the groups will fly to is still not sure. Everything depends on the weather conditions over the next hours.

2010 Chinese GP: Monday Morning Debrief with Eric Boullier


Eric, we saw another topsy-turvy race in difficult conditions yesterday, but the Renault F1 Team once again took full advantage. What's been the secret to the team's success?
We've managed the most of each opportunity that's come our way. I think a lot of it comes down to the fact that this is a real racing team: everybody is focused on the racing, and only the racing. Having said that, we're not getting complacent, either. The line between ‘hero' and ‘zero' is incredibly thin in Formula 1.

Car 5 Sebastian Vettel, Finish Position: 6th, Start Position: 1st
“It was a difficult race – on nearly every second lap there was a car to pass or I got passed. I lost quite a bit of time with the first pit-stop, but we fought our way back and ended the race in sixth. We started on pole, with a one/two actually, but we didn’t finish there. I think today it was very chaotic and to take sixth can be quite important. Obviously our main competitors finished ahead, so that’s not nice.

Jaime Alguersuari (STR5-03) Pos. 13th
“I tried to get points today, but in the end it wasn’t possible as I made a mistake lapping a Hispania, who was slower than me and was shown the blue flag, but he moved from side to side. I tried to get past on the right, but he came back on me and touched my wing, which is how I lost it. We tried to switch to Intermediates before everyone, but in the end I had to pit for an additional set. I did what I could in what was a crazy race. On the slick tyres, we were really fast and I got past Sutil and there were some good passing moves, but I’m disappointed with the result. Now we go to my home race in Barcelona where I hope to challenge for points again.”

Chinese GP - Rain rules in Shanghai


Shanghai 18 April - Exactly predicted at the start of the week, rain arrived just before the start of the Chinese Grand Prix. Today, the weather gods did not help the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro team, as Fernando Alonso came home in fourth place and Felipe Massa was ninth, at least bringing home 14 valuable points. However, this was not enough to keep the lead in both championships, as the Scuderia now drops to second place behind McLaren, who scored a convincing one-two, with Jenson Button taking his second win of the season ahead of team-mate, Lewis Hamilton. The very consistent Nico Rosberg was third for Mercedes, which means he is now second in the Drivers’ classification behind Button and ahead of third placed Alonso. Massa drops down from first to sixth.

SUNDAY 18 APRIL, 2010
A rain-affected Chinese Grand Prix delivered an unsatisfactory result for the AT&T Williams team at the Shanghai International Circuit this afternoon. Light drizzle at the start of the race quickly turned into continuous rain, which ultimately compromised the team’s strategy and led to a series of pitstops for both drivers to counter the conditions. At the conclusion of the 56 lap race, neither driver had made it into the points, with Rubens Barrichello finishing in 12th and Nico Hulkenberg in P15.

Lotus Racing’s first four races came to an end in China with another solid performance as the head of the new teams and for the first time coming out in front of one of their established rivals. Heikki Kovalainen dealt with the tricky conditions superbly, making a bold call early on to stay out on dry tyres when most of the pack opted for wets, and finished the race in 14th place after a tight battle with Nico Hulkenberg’s Williams. Jarno Trulli’s race came to a premature end on lap 34 after his run of bad luck continued in Shanghai in a race dominated by the damp conditions.

Car 5 Sebastian Vettel, Position: POLE
“It was tough today. I was not happy yesterday and this morning, as Mark was quite a bit quicker than me. We made some changes to the car in Mark’s direction, but it was still extremely difficult. I was struggling in the first sector, but then I got a purple (fastest) time in sector one on my last lap, so I think we made a good step forward. I found a better line that worked, remembering things from last year. I lost my way a little bit in free practice this morning, but I had two very good runs in Q3.

Chinese GP - Rain and race pace can decide the result


Shanghai, 17 April – Fernando Alonso is in confident mood after he secured a place on the second row of the grid, with a fine drive to third in qualifying this afternoon, for tomorrow’s Chinese Grand Prix. The Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro man felt he got the most out of the F10 in qualifying trim and is now looking forward to turning his good grid position into at least an equally good result in the race. His team-mate Felipe Massa faces a harder challenge, after an error at the final corner cost him a few tenths. It means the Brazilian will start from the inside of the fourth row, in seventh place.

“That was good, we had no big issues and the car was working fine. We did quite a lot of laps so it was a solid day. It looks very close; the Mercedes look competitive, as well as the McLarens and Ferraris. It will be tight tomorrow, but we will see. I had a good race here in 2007 when I finished fourth for Toro Rosso and then last year with the victory, so there are a lot of good emotions and memories attached to this place.”

“Another new circuit for me: it’s impressive, tough and technical but enjoyable to drive. Today went well for me, as we completed a lot of work, trying different fuel loads and working on set-up, as well as a tyre comparison. The hard tyre definitely takes a lot longer to come up to temperature, while the soft tyre seemed to work very well for us and should be good in the race. We still have work to do to improve tomorrow, but I am happy with what we have achieved so far.”

Targeting more performance and reliability


Shanghai, 13 April - Going into the fourth round of the Formula 1 World Championship, Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro heads both the Constructors’ and Drivers’ classifications, which can be cause for satisfaction, given that yet again in Malaysia, on a track with very different characteristics to those of the previous two races, it was clear that the F10 is a very competitive package. However, this was not exploited to the full because, along with some other teams, the Scuderia made a strategic mistake in qualifying. The team also feels it has understood some of the reliability problems which affected Alonso’s car in Sepang, notably, with the gearbox, which was down to a reliability issue with one of its components.

Robert Kubica: “We can be proud of our recent performance”


Robert, you had a strong weekend in Malaysia and finished the race in fourth place. Were you satisfied with the result?
If you had offered me fourth place before the start of the weekend, I would have taken it. Like Australia, it was another strong performance by the whole team and a good weekend all round. In qualifying we made the right decisions and reacted well to the weather conditions, and in the race I made up a couple of places at the start, which was important for the final result. To have scored 30 points in two races is a good achievement and as much as we could have hoped for.

Vitaly Petrov: “The priority is to get the experience of a race distance”


Vitaly, you made another strong start to the race in Malaysia. How did it feel from the cockpit?
When you start the race just outside the top ten, it's hard to overtake as many cars as I did in Bahrain or Australia, but I still made up a couple of positions. I felt very comfortable in the first part of the race and enjoyed some good fights with the cars around me, especially with Hamilton. We then made an early pit stop and changed to the prime tyres, which was probably a mistake because I struggled for grip compared with the options. But in the end it didn't matter because my race ended with the gearbox problem.

We've made the most of the opportunities that have been presented to us and we have scored some strong results, which is a great way to start the season.

That might sound overly self-critical, given that we are second in the constructors’ championship, and given that Jenson and Lewis are both close to the top of the drivers’ championship, but that’s merely a reflection of the fact that we at Vodafone McLaren Mercedes aim to excel at all times.

Malaysian GP - Still leading both championships


Sepang, 4 April - On Saturday evening, after Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro’s poor qualifying performance, which left Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa 19th and 21st on the grid respectively, Chris Dyer had said that the Malaysian Grand Prix would be a case of “damage limitation.” And so it turned out to be, with Felipe picking up six points for seventh place, to lead the Drivers’ classification and allow Ferrari to maintain its lead in the Constructors’. Fernando? He too had hauled himself up the order into the points, but was cruelly robbed of them when his engine failed, almost within sight of the chequered flag. The race was dominated by Red Bull Racing with Sebastian Vettel winning, after getting the jump on his pole-sitting team-mate, Mark Webber who finished second. Joining them on the podium was Nico Rosberg for Mercedes.

Malaysian GP - Tricked by the forecast


Sepang, 3 April – Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro’s hopes of a strong qualifying session this afternoon, based on competitive runs during free practice, were literally washed away in the rain, when a heavy downpour hit the track just as the first part of the session began. The plain facts are that Fernando Alonso will start tomorrow’s Malaysian Grand Prix from the tenth row of the grid in nineteenth place, with Felipe Massa right behind him in twenty first place.

Missed opportunity for Scuderia Toro Rosso in Malysia

Malaysian GP, Saturday: Toro Rosso Reaction


Giorgio Ascanelli: "Malaysian rain is like English tea: it comes around five and it’s the same temperature. Seriously though, we got our tactics right in going out immediately in Q1. But in Q2, if we had more confidence in the forecast, we should have gone out earlier on Intermediates, but we thought it was too risky. We called Sébastien in at the right minute, but he did not come in and we missed the best slot. Jaime was very lucky not to run out of fuel in Q1 as he stayed out for one lap too long and in Q2, I would say he is pretty much where we would have expected. Therefore, something of a missed opportunity today.”

Sebastien Buemi (STR5-01)
“I am happy with the way today went. In the morning we concentrated on finding out how our car behaved on this track and then in the afternoon, we completed a lot of laps, including a very long stint, to assess tyre behaviour. On the long run, I did 30 laps, which is over half a race distance and although the conditions are very tough in terms of the high temperature and humidity, I was fine in the cockpit. I am looking forward to tomorrow, because I think we have established a good base line from which to make progress in the last free practice, before tackling qualifying.”
