Shell Australian Grand Prix Activation
Seb and Kimi Q&A - Australian Grand Prix
Paul Zennaro: What’s your favorite part about the Melbourne Grand Prix circuit, and what do you find most challenging about the circuit here in Melbourne?
Sebastian Vettel: It’s a tricky one, it’s not a permanent race track, it’s usually quite bumpy, that makes it very tricky. The most exciting bit I find is the high-speed section, I think it’s turn eleven/twelve. The fast chicane around the back, but yeah, all the circuit is quite, challenging, as I said because of the bumps especially.
Paul Zennaro: And can you tell us a little bit about the work you do with Shell’s track side team, and how they help you to improve your performance?
Sebastian Vettel: Yeah, they help us massively, I mean they’re been travelling with us all around the world and looking after us, looking after the fuels, lubricants, and there’s a lot of performance in that. One is raw horse power, so you want to get more power to the ground, but the other one also is life and reliability. Obviously, it’s quite strict especially this year with only three engines available, we want to make sure that we, you know, stay within those three engines for the entire season. So, yeah, without the help of these guys at the track lab it would be quite difficult.
Kimi Räikkönen: Not the easy place to start the season, always and quite tricky, tricky areas to first go on especially, but it’s a challenge, the whole weekend usually everyone starts to get back into the racing and hopefully it all goes smoothly. But it’s obviously a nice place to come, a bit far for us from Europe but it’s a lovely place to come.
