30 September, 2011
Sep.30 (PVM) Mercedes GP team principal Ross Brawn expects the challenging nature of the Suzuka track to suit their MGP-W02 car and is determined that the team have a strong weekend in Japan.
Brawn said, “From our team’s perspective, we had a more challenging weekend in Singapore than at the final two European races, however Suzuka is a track which should be more suited to our car, so we will work hard to have a stronger weekend here.”
He added, “Suzuka is a classic racing circuit which has hosted some memorable races over the years, and we are all looking forward to returning to Japan next week. The recent improvements to the circuit and paddock have made Suzuka an excellent venue, and the support that Formula One receives from the enthusiastic Japanese fans is always very impressive.”
“After the tragedy which took place in the country earlier this year, we hope that the race will provide entertainment and enjoyment, and it seems somehow fitting that the championship is likely to be decided in Japan,” said Brawn who has led Benetton, Ferrari and his own team Brawn GP to world titles.
