Pastor Maldonado: “The Nurburgring is always amazing to visit because of its history, the combination of different technical corners and the fans there. I hope to improve on our last result and be more competitive, especially in the race. The second sector is my favourite part of the track as it has high speed, very technical corners. I first raced at the Nürburgring in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in 2006 and qualified on pole but I had problems in the race. I also raced at the track during my time in GP2, scoring my best result of fourth in 2007.”

Sam Michael: “Nurburgring is a high downforce track with lots of challenging corner sequences, some off camber turns and kerbs. Set-up will be focused on the slow and medium speed corners. We have a new rear wing, front wing and revised engine mapping for the exhaust blowing on over-run that has now been reinstated.”

Rubens Barrichello: “Nurburgring is very special to me as I won there for Ferrari and I really like the track a lot. The circuit has a lot of camber changes and so it is pretty difficult to get the best car set-up, but that just makes it all the more interesting. There is normally a chance of rain as well which adds another element into the mix. The corner onto the back straight is one of the best in my opinion. I hope we can have a good performing car this weekend and I will be giving my very best to score some points.”
