Force India F1 TeamGiancarlo Fisichella: “Hockenheim is a good circuit for drivers, with the long straights and hairpins, and there are a couple of overtaking points, which make it good racing. It’s not actually one of my favourites of the year, but I do have some good memories of the event, especially in 1997 when I led the race. We were at Hockenheim last week for the test and tried out some more new parts. We’re slowly getting there, the new parts at Silverstone were only two tenths from getting us into Q2 and if I had not spun on my fastest lap in Qualifying, perhaps we would have got through for the first time this year. With the seamless shift box due to debut in Hungary, we should perhaps look to this race for a better step forward rather than in Germany, but I’ll still be pushing in this race.”

Adrian Sutil: “To drive at the Hockenheimring is a very good feeling for me as it will be my home race. It’s a great circuit to drive, a very nice feeling for an F1 driver, with hairpins, long straights and really quick corners. The motodrome is such a fantastic complex: to go in there and hear the crowd is amazing. I have very good memories from the past here – both as a fan and as a driver – which is why I am so pleased to be here now. I think I am well prepared for my home Grand Prix after the test, so hopefully it will bring me a little bit of luck. I’m absolutely looking forward to my home Grand Prix.”
