Giedo van der Garde: “This will be my final FP1 run of the season and it’s on another track I haven’t driven on before, but I’ve done the usual preparation on my simulator so I’ll be up to speed quickly. It looks like it’s a pretty technical track and one that everyone tells me has a fantastic atmosphere so I’m looking forward to getting out there and picking up where I left off in Abu Dhabi after two really good days in the car.” Heikki Kovalainen: “Interlagos is a good place for us to end the season as it’s one of those tracks where anything can happen. It looks like there could be rain every day and that’ll mean picking the right strategy will be key to performance – time the stops right and you can take advantage of whatever happens in qualifying or the race

Giedo van der Garde: “With each session I’m doing I’m getting more comfortable with the car and the team and the feedback I’m getting from the engineers is good, so India’s another chance to build on that. It’s another new track for me but one that looks cool on my simulator, and the other drivers have told me it’s better than quite a few of the stop / start type of tracks so I’m looking forward to getting back out on track. “I’m also really looking forward to going to India
