Helmut Marko With engines, we will decide in Austria
Helmut Marko We are surprised at how quickly Daniel adapted. He didn't make any mistakes, starting with the Grand Prix of Australia, very calmly and confidently holds the race. But it should be noted that Vettel pursue a technical problem that does not allow to assess the balance of forces. However, in Spain Sebastian drove the fastest lap of the race if he feels comfortable driving and trusts machine, capable of much. This does not mean that it necessarily will dominate, but the struggle will become more dense.
Question How Sebastian cope with the new situation
Helmut Marko We have experienced serious disappointment in the very first tests" class="posttag">tests. The new Formula 1 is not so demanding riders, as it was before, he had to find a way, but this weekend, in Monaco, it is far more efficiently worked with the settings in training.
Question You said that Formula 1 is not so demanding riders.
Helmut Marko Yes. For example, Daniel Quat was unable to gain optimum physical form at the beginning of the season - it's just not enough time in the last few years its growth cool increased, and in the former Formula 1 could be problems, but he is very cool - requirements for physical form now not so great.
Helmut Marko Together with Renault, we did everything in order to solve these problems and has had some success - behind the leaders decreased from four seconds on the final winter test to one second in rain" class="posttag">Bahrain, but it is not enough to deal with Mercedes. Accurate analysis of the situation with engines we will do to Grand Prix Austria, and then we will decide how to proceed.
Helmut Marko I have already said - we lost a very few. All the leading specialists remained.
Question How important Newey for your team
Question do You like to play in Monaco
Helmut Marko compared to other routes or something. I don't want to call this route archaic, but the differences are many. There are no zones of departure, only barriers, working conditions very difficult, although the atmosphere is really unique.
Question Probably better Monaco can be only Spielberg
Helmut Marko Yes, there is a great combination of beautiful nature and modern racing circuit.
Question How is the preparation for Grand Prix of Austria All the stands are built
Helmut Marko We could not meet the schedule because of the weather - in the winter there was a lot of snow and the temperatures reached minus -20, but now everything is going according to plan - tribune, buildings and structures, ways of entrance. There were already two races without any problems, and a dress rehearsal will be the stage of the GT Masters.
Question will there be additional inspection of the route from the FIA
Helmut Marko Everything is ready. The track itself has not changed, we only set additional stands and went on the road for service.
Question Stages in Spielberg and Silverstone is the only calendar that are conducted without the support of the government.
Helmut Marko Yes, and we are proud of this, as much interest from the public. 36 hours has sold 180 thousand tickets, we expect to see more than two hundred thousand spectators for the three day weekend.
Question is There any hope that this will allow at least recoup the cost
Helmut Marko at First she was, but was prevented by the high cost of the construction of the new press center and other facilities. But we hope for a good financial results in the future.
Helmut Marko We always support new and interesting ideas, but I repeat it is important for us that the woman is not just driven the car, and could fight among the leaders. Until such candidates not.
Question Pilots now rarely Express their opinion, do you miss racers with a bright character
Helmut Marko This imperative, but the situation is gradually improving. Hamilton does not fit into this scheme, Vettel expresses his opinion, as Riccardo - he is always smiling says sincerely. Let slowly, but gradually.
