Felipe Massa: “Australia is a fantastic place
to start the season, not only because it’s a beautiful country,
but also because the people are so nice. So it’s always a big
pleasure to go to Australia. It really is the perfect place to
get started. It’s quite a tricky track though.
“It’s half racetrack, half street circuit, so it’s definitely
not easy. It’s good to have a difficult challenge at the start
of the season though.
I’m just really looking forward to getting started! It’s always
a very important race because it’s the first time all of the
teams will be together and racing for real.”
Lance Stroll: “I am really excited for
Melbourne. It’s going to be quite an experience being my first
ever Grand Prix. It’s a new track and I have never been to
Australia. I am just really looking forward to it all and very
excited to get started. I can’t wait.
“I have driven the track in the simulator and I have seen some
videos, and onboards. It looks quite tricky. Even though it is
a new track for me it’s a different track also.
“It’s kind of a road course, so the track really changes a lot
throughout the weekend, so that will be a good challenge. I
will just take it as it comes, push as hard as I can, enjoy it
and look forward to the weekend.”
