“You have to believe, there’s nothing else. In F1 what happens is that when the year starts you are in a position and you will more or less finish the year in that positionIt’s not like tennis, where there are surprises every now and then, or football, where a small team can beat a big one.”

“In Formula 1, everything is too precise and mathematical, and the moments of surprise are few. That’s the big problem: that you can create an illusion and you can have an illusion yourself and start at the top one year, but then in the 24 races it’s very monotonous… You’ll always do the same thing, it can be frustrating for the fan”.

They have all the necessary resources, they have the necessary investment, the talent, they have hired number one engineers at Red Bull and Mercedes… They started badly this year, but a lot of times a bad start gives you that spark of wanting to change things quickly. I think we’re going to try to turn it into that spark and turn it around. I am confident”.
