Sakon Yamamoto: "I am looking forward to race at the Korea International Circuit and it is going to be really exciting as no one has ever raced on this completely new track before. The layout calls up slow and high speed corners and you have to find the right set-up. We have to learn the specialities of the circuit very quickly to get the best out of the car. After achieving my best race result in front of my home crowd, I am highly motivated to show a good performance again."
Bruno Senna: "Going to Korea for the first time should be a very interesting experience. No one has been to the circuit before, but it seems to be a challenging track. It is a mix of a sector with slow corners and long straights and another one with changes of direction on medium speed corners. You need a car with good braking stability and good traction. It is a bit unknown for everyone, but we hope that, as it is going to be the first time here for everybody, it will level the playing -field and make it possible for us to achieve a good result."
Dr. Colin Kolles, Team Principal: "Everyone in the Formula 1 paddock is excited to come to Korea. The circuit has been completed just before the start of the event and so you can say that it is brand-new. Located by the sea, the circuit is formed by a permanent section but about half of the lap is a temporary section. Winding up around the town's skyscrapers and the harbour, the Korea International Circuit provides a glamorous backdrop. After our good result in Japan, where we could bring both cars to the finish line again, we are working hard for another positive race weekend."
