Vitaly Petrov I want a different sound in Formula 1
Vitaly Petrov came on the weekend of the Formula 1 in Monaco. On Tuesday he participated in a charity football match in the team of pilots, and today spoke with former colleagues on Lotus and answered questions nonf1.ru in motorhome Mercedes.
Vitaly Petrov we Can say that Yes - for the first time in a year and a half.
Question Watch the fight
Question Who made the biggest impression
Know that Vettel still unable to find the approach to the brakes, that for me it would be a problem. Riccardo quite justified all hopes of those who made a bet on it.
Question In the struggle of Hamilton with Rosberg you on whose side
Vitaly Petrov Hamilton. Not that I'm for it to hurt, I just think its really unique pilot. I have known and seen it. In recent years McLaren he was not as competitive machines, however, he always got the maximum out of it.
Question What impression debut quata
Vitaly Petrov Good. He's infallible, in the first race earned points. Another thing is that during the season to achieve this it will be harder - everything adapt, solve their problems, damage will be less, and eventually Toro Rosso move back, to the boundary of the feature dozens.
The main thing - he is ahead of his team-mate is going very stable - this is very important. He has a whole season to learn. The new machine, unknown trails, this weekend he first appears here in Monaco.82328232
On the football we were discussing this route. I was advised to raise the car and go as many circles. It is important that it is not "Circulo" for braking, otherwise you can lose a lot of time.
Question How do you like the sound of new machines
Vitaly Petrov 's Terrifying.
Question do you Not like
Vitaly Petrov No, absolutely.
Q This season compared with many legendary 1988, then motors too was not so loud.
Vitaly Petrov I don't know. Yes no cars go well, quickly, but when I came in Formula 1, I sound just shook -160I literally fell in love with it. And what I hear now is not that. I want a different sound.
Everyone on this occasion his opinion. It would be great to get behind the wheel, trying out a new car, to understand how it behaves, to feel the difference. Perhaps on the track she behaves even better though with a turbocharged engine is unlikely.
Question the thrill debut in the DTM coincided with your expectations
Vitaly Petrov Racing weekend in the DTM like weekends GP2 and other series, this difference is not much, but the approach to the management of the machine is very different from those series, where I made before. Need some time to configure everything properly, to adapt to this machine.
Question Mercedes dissatisfied with the beginning of the season - now we are working on in order to achieve more
Vitaly Petrov Yes. Seriously reconsidered the approach to the race week-end, to work, because the results that we saw in qualifying and the first two races no one is satisfied. In the second race can say that we were lucky, but for pure speed in qualifying we lose too much for such series, as the DTM.
Question some periods, when the Mercedes expect to add, were announced
Vitaly Petrov Concrete terms it is impossible to be all work, make every effort, but when and how it will affect the results difficult to say.
Vitaly Petrov a Bit nervous, after all, come my fans will gather a lot of viewers, and I was not in the home race in 2005. It is difficult to talk about expectations, but I'll be glad to see their fans before they are always prepared many flags and banners, I hope there will be more.
