"Of all the current GP tracks, Barcelona is the one that we know the most because we have done so much testing there in recent years. That said, the knowledge that you gain at the tests doesn't always help due to the changing wind direction that occurs there, which can sometimes give you a nasty surprise, especially into Turn 1. But in general, a car that functions well aerodynamically in Barcelona will work everywhere - so it will be an interesting weekend. We have been working on the package for Barcelona at this week's test, but we will still have set-up work to do there on arrival."
"It's the first European race of the season, so it will be all hands on deck after a successful Mugello test. It was a tricky start to the test, but it finished off well and we head to Barcelona with good miles on the car and an understanding of some new avenues. I like the Barcelona track, we do a lot of work there and it's a track that's been good to me in the past. I got pole there for the last two years and converted it to a win in 2010, so I'm looking for a strong weekend. It's tight amongst the teams, so we're mindful that we need to get everything right to get a good weekend."
